Co-founder of Small Editions Takes on a Big Role in the Oldest Book Art Center in the U.S.
The Center for Book Arts Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Corina Reynolds as Interim Executive Director.
Beginning in September, Corina will oversee the operation of the organization, including exhibitions, classes, artists’ residencies and literary programs.
Corina comes to the Center from Small Editions, an independent artists’ book publisher, exhibition space, and bindery in Brooklyn which she co-founded and has directed since 2012. Small Editions has worked with over 50 artists to produce more than 35 editions and 20 exhibitions. During this time, she has been an active member of the Center.
Of her new role, Corina says, “I am honored to lead the Center for Book Arts during this period of transition, and grateful to Alex Campos, the Board, and our members and funders, whose hard work and support have helped CBA grow into a vital resource for the book art community. I look forward to working with the staff and board to encourage innovation and excellence as the Center prepares to commemorate its 50-year anniversary.”
Board Chair Stephen Bury said of the appointment, “We are thrilled to have someone as passionate for and knowledgeable about the book arts as Corina Reynolds to carry forward the work of the Center during this exciting time. We are committed to our mission of promoting books as a contemporary art form and the Board looks forward to working with Corina as we plan for a promising new chapter.
Please join us in welcoming Corina Reynolds to the Center for Book Arts!”

The Center for Book Arts is dedicated to exploring and cultivating contemporary aesthetic interpretations of the book as an art object, while preserving the traditional practices of the art of the book. The Center seeks to facilitate communication between the book arts community and the larger spheres of contemporary art and literature through exhibitions, classes, public programming, literary presentations, opportunities for artists and writers, publications, and collecting. Founded in 1974 and still located in Manhattan, it was the first not-for-profit organization of its kind in the nation, and has since become a model for others around the world.
