Publication Studio prints and binds books by hand, creating original work with artists and writers we admire. It serves as a space for publication in its fullest sense: it doesn't simply produce books, but also brings people together through the shared experience of reading. Every book is made one at a time as needed. We attend to the social life of a book using any means possible to expand its circle of readers:
wild social events!
This breathes life into the written word on paper, online, and through discussion. Publication Studios are active around the world in cities like Portland (US), Vancouver (CA), London (UK), Oakland (US), Hudson (US), Minneapolis (US), Guelph (CA), Rotterdam (NL), Edmonton (AB), São Paulo (BR), Glasgow (SL), and Dakar (SN).
