The Bridger Mountain Scribes of Montana comprises calligraphers in southwest Montana, including Bozeman and Gallatin Gateway. We meet once a month to discuss calligraphy, artists books, and other book arts, usually on the 1st Monday of the month at the Bozeman Public Library.

Our next meeting will be held from 11 am – 1 pm on Monday, August 8. This meeting will be held in the small conference room at the public library.
