If you experience
The Aldus Society is an organization for individuals who appreciate the many facets of text and image through various media, but principally the book, past, present and future. Aldus provides a wide variety of programs and activities for its membership, be it book collecting, the history of printing and publishing and book selling, book illustration, book design, book bindings, paper making, typography, calligraphy, or libraries.
Since its founding in 2000, the Aldus Society has sponsored eight lectures a year on the book and graphic arts. In the fall of 2001 the Aldus Society launched the History of Text and Image series, which covers the history of text and image from the period of stone through the computer age. Anyone who has the opportunity to attend most programs will, in essence, have a course in the history of text as the Aldus Society tries to fulfill its mission of being a university without walls. The Aldus Society also prepares workshops on paper making, book repair, book collecting and book valuing. Field trips to distinguished collections at other locales are planned for the summer months and impromptu holiday gatherings and summer get-togethers are held to promote fellowship.
In addition to the enjoyment of
participating in the group's activities, members receive both the quarterly newsletter of the Aldus Society and
the twice yearly publication of the Fellowship of
American Bibliophilic Societies (FABS).
