Book Arts Space: Pre-Visit Learning

The Book Arts Space at UVic Libraries supports letterpress printing, bookbinding, and other activities supporting research into historical and contemporary book arts. This Guide introduces basic health and safety information prior to a visit to the Book A


The Book Arts Space is an interdisciplinary space supporting letterpress printing, bookbinding, papermaking, and related activities supporting research and inquiry into historical and contemporary book arts.

Our space is a place to experiment with old information technologies and emerging technologies and new ideas. It is not a production facility, and this eliminates the need for such undue haste or speed while working on projects. If you're tired or stressed, just take a break – as long as you need.

UVic Libraries is committed to the safety and environmental sustainability of the Book Arts space. We will mitigate harm and risk in every way to facilitate green and “safer printmaking” for all users at UVic.
