In my role as Programs Manager at the Center for Book Arts, one of my primary responsibilities is to manage the operations of the planning, production, and distribution of all publications released by the Center: including quarterly exhibition catalogs, brochures, and literary objects produced in limited editions. While adhering to strict budgetary conditions and the exhibition timeline, I commission the contractors responsible for production logistics such as photographers, printers and bookbinders, in addition to closely working with artists, designers, illustrators, writers, and poets to produce the publication’s content. I oversee the budgetary end of projects, procuring quotes from contractors, and obtaining reproduction rights for text and images. I have managed to localize our production methods, commissioning independent artists and companies in the New York City and Tri-State area.
