Publication Studio Glasgow
Fri 11 February 2022
A book-binding induction at Publication Studio Glasgow, CCA. Come along to learn how to print, trim, crease and bind your own book. Inductions last 1 hour.
You do not need to bring anything along on the day, all materials will be provided (for induction only), but it might help if you have a publishing project in mind to discuss with us on the day.
After this one hour induction you will be able to use Publication Studio on your own for your own publishing projects. PS Glasgow's open-source facilities include a new automatic perfect binding machine, cover creasing machine (manual), room with a table to work, A3 guillotine (Ideal 3905), stamps, rulers, pen markers and other hardware. You can also print A4 and A3 in colour and B&W.
Publication Studio (founded in 2009 in Portland, Oregon) is an international network of sibling studios, with a presence in thirteen cities including New York, London, Rotterdam and now Glasgow. Publication Studio prints and binds books one at a time on-demand, creating original work with artists and writers they admire. They attend to the social life of the book. A laboratory for publication in its fullest sense - not just the production of books, but the production of a public. Together these construct a space of conversation which beckons a public into being.
CCA, along with partners My Bookcase, Good Press Gallery, A Feral Studio & artist Joanna Peace, have joined forces to bring Publication Studio to Glasgow: a publishing enterprise as well as an open source printing facility housed at CCA. Once inducted you can have access to the facilities by contacting CCA and booking for a day (£20) or half-day (£10).
