We are delighted to post this call for submissions for the 2019 Fall issue of the FABS Journal, the official publication of The Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies, whose mission is to communicate, share, and support biblio-centric activities, research, and ideas across its member clubs. The journal is published twice annually in print and digital form, and 6,000 copies of each issue are distributed to our North American Member Clubs and International Affiliates.  In addition to reporting club news, each issue features an article, review, Q&A, or opinion piece on a topic of the author’s choosing. 

Past issues may be viewed in PDF form on the FABS website:

We welcome entries from ALL corners of the book world including (but certainly not limited to): librarians, institutions, dealers, collectors, bibliographers, conservators, archivists, book plate enthusiasts, academics, curators, bookbinders, decorated paper makers, and anyone who has done significant independent research on the book as an object.  You do not need to be a member of a FABS club to submit, and the Fall 2019 issue is not themed.

Submissions must not exceed the 2000 word limit and must be emailed to the editor no later than 11:59 p.m. on June 30th (email address below). The issue will be published in the first week of October.

We hope you will consider sharing your work!

With best wishes,
Annie Rowlenson, Editor

Scott Ellwood, Assistant Editor
