Welcome to the Alcuin Society
The Alcuin Society is a voluntary association supported by people who care
about the past, present and future of fine books. Founded in 1965 by Geoff Spencer and six other Vancouver bibliophiles, it is the only non-profit organization in Canada dedicated to the entire range of interests related to books and reading. These interests include authorship, publishing, book design and production, bookselling, book buying and collecting, printing, binding, papermaking, calligraphy and illustration.
The Alcuin Society has recently established its own endowment with the Vancouver Foundation. If you would like to help this fund grow and thus provide, in perpetuity, a steady income flow to support the activities of Alcuin please consider making a tax deductible donation of any amount.
