Co-curated by Alexander Campos and John Roach, The Internal Machine suggested a perspective that considered the book object as a piece of technology. Utilizing a thought process that highlights the relationship between form and function and their dual contribution to the movement of a book through time and space, The Internal Machine prompted the question of a book’s structure in relation to its purpose. 

The Center for Book Arts promotes active explorations of both contemporary and traditional artistic practices related to the book as an art object. The Center seeks to facilitate communication between the book arts community and the larger spheres of contemporary visual and literary arts, while being a model organization locally, nationally, and internationally within the field. Founded in 1974, The Center was the first not-for-profit book arts organization of its kind in the nation.
