The Center for Book, Paper and Print is dedicated to the research, teaching and promotion of the interdisciplinary practices that support the book arts, hand papermaking and print as contemporary art media. The Center has a fine art press, bindery, letterpress and papermaking studio, research facility, and project space that provide a work environment for students, faculty and the community to explore contemporary art practices.
A cultural resource, the Center supports curriculum through lectures, workshops, artist residencies, the Journal of Artists Books (JAB) publication and internships. The Center’s activities are enhanced by providing time and space for emerging and established artists to work in the Center’s various studios. Their creative output, presence and interaction with students, faculty and staff enhance the College’s progressive educational curriculum.
