The Codex Foundation was established in 2005 by Berkeley-based artist/printer/publisher Peter Rutledge Koch and other fine book printers, curators, and aficionados. It was founded to promote knowledge and appreciation of the book arts, and to organize a biennial international book fair and symposium in the San Francisco Bay Area. The non-profit Codex Foundation exists to preserve and promote the art and craft of the book. The mission is educational and, in the broadest possible context, to bring to public recognition the artisanship and the rich history of the civilizations of the book.
