If you experience
The Aldus Society is an organization for people 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 on book collecting, the history of printing, publishing, and book selling, book illustration, book design, book bindings, paper making, typography, calligraphy, and libraries.
Monthly lectures are held on the second Thursday of the month from September through November and from January through May. These meetings are free and open to the public. All are welcome.
Members of the Aldus Society enjoy additional activities including a thrice-yearly newsletter, field trips, First Saturdays, a Summer Picnic, Book Crawls, dinner with the speaker, the Holiday Dinner and Book Auction, and access to the Aldus Forum (listserv). Memberships start at $50 per year for individuals. To enjoy the full range of Aldus activities, consider an annual membership.
In addition to the enjoyment of participating in the group's activities, members receive the twice yearly publication of the Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies (FABS).
