Welcome to Book Arts Collaborative.

Dedication to craft drives our mission.

The Book Arts Collaborative, located in the Madjax Building in downtown Muncie, Indiana, is a book bindery and letterpress run by Ball State University students. We make products for consumers, provide lessons for the community, and share our collaborative space with letterpress and book binding makers. Every year, we also publish a chosen artist’s press book which is released at our Interrobang celebration in April!

The Book Arts Collaborative is dedicated to preserving and promoting the apprentice-taught skills of letterpress printing and book binding through community interaction.  

It's not just what we make that matters, but how we learn from one another to make it happen.
