Publication Studio Glasgow
Publication Studio Inductions
Wed 10 May 2023
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 and we ask for a small fee of £5 to cover costs.
For inductions only, basic paper is provided though we do encourage you to bring your own paper and printed material, particularly if you have a specific project in mind right from the off. Do leave a decent margin to allocate for the perfect binder.
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 an 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 current presence in eleven cities including San Francisco, Vancouver, Pearl River Delta, Sao Paulo and more. 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, joined forces to bring Publication Studio to Glasgow: a publishing enterprise as well as an open source printing facility housed at CCA.
Inductions occur on the second Wednesday of each month. Should these be booked up, do get in contact with CCA to see if we can arrange extra sessions. Once inducted you can have access to the facilities by contacting CCA and booking for a day (£20) or half-day (£10).
