This is the tenth issue of JAB to be produced at the Center for Book & Paper Arts (CBPA) at Columbia College Chicago (CCC). During this time a number of changes in editorial, production, and creative aspects have occurred which have improved JAB's ability to document and analyze the field of artists' books. JAB's symbiotic relationship within the Interdisciplinary Arts MFA Program in Book and Paper at CBPA has evolved over the past five years.
Familiar artists and writers as well as new comprise JAB30, reflecting the maturations of the artists' book genre and demonstrating its appeal to new generations.
