Caxton Club on the Move:

On Friday, October 6, and Saturday, October 7, 2017, we are traveling to join our many friends at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign. For details, see the flyer (PDF).

The Caxton Club announces its annual grants for expenses of up to $2,500 (each) for book-related projects to be completed during academic year 2017-2018. Grants totaling up to $10,000 will be awarded. The grants will cover expenses, such as travel, materials, and tuition fees.

The Caxton Club has been awarded a grant by the Terra Foundation for American Art and #ArtDesignChicago for

Chicago 101: 101 Publications That Shaped Chicago and Its Image: a multi-author book, published by the University of Chicago Press and developed by the Caxton Club of Chicago, that examines 101 Chicago-focused texts that illuminate the diverse elements that have shaped Chicago’s identity and reputation. It includes numerous essays that address Chicago’s contributions to art, architecture, and design. Expected in fall 2018.”
