What is JCBA?

The Jaffe Center is a collection of art books at Florida Atlantic University. The centers fondation is credited to Arthur Jaffe and his wife, Mata, Arthur, who built an outstanding collection of books as aesthetic objects focused on artists’ books and limited editions. This collection began over 20 years and was graciously given to FAU in 1998. Rather than being the end of something for the Jaffe’s, that gift was an inspired beginning, garnering an enthusiastic group of loyal supporters that grows with each passing year. The Arthur & Mata Jaffe Center for Book Arts is their legacy.

The Jaffe Collection is open to researchers Monday to Friday 10 AM to 4 PM, by appointment. For those who wish to learn more about the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, a 60-minute tour is offered each week on Wednesdays at 3:00.
