community book arts center offering classes in the art of bookbinding, letterpress, and printmaking in an open studio environment. From letterpress to laser cutting, boundedition provides avenues for creative expression and collaboration among a rich variety of artists, printmakers, craftsmen, and designers who are passionate about exploring book and paper arts and trades.
The studio is on the south side of Ann Arbor near the new Costco. Printmaker Jim Horton manages the boundedition letterpress studio and will be on hand to train and assist members. The studio features a range of vintage letterpress printing equipment and traditional fine art printmaking presses.
Book artist Barbara Brown will lead the boundedition bookbinding program, sharing her expertise in alternative constructions, artist’s books, and bringing in guest instructors to inspire and educate.
Kerrytown bookseller Gene Alloway offers experienced perspectives on book history, collecting and all things bibliophile.
We are a community resource for the preservation, practice and expansion of the book, printmaking, and paper arts and trades through education, collaboration and creative exploration.
