We Are Book Arts COLLABORATive

Book Arts Collaborative is an immersive learning course and student-managed business that offers Ball State University and community courses in letterpress printing, book binding, and collaborative opportunities for artist's book making. Initially funded by a Virginia Ball Center Grant and Provost's Initiative monies, the Book Arts Collaborative was founded in 2016, and is the dream-come-true of Rai Peterson and Rob and Kim Miller at Tribune Showprint, Inc in Muncie, Indiana. Many other community members, teachers, and learners share the dream now.

More than 75 Ball State students have comprised the management, product development staff, and workshop leaders of Book Arts Collaborative. Additionally, more than 100 community members have engaged with us as makers. Book Arts Collaborative invites Ball State University students and members of the larger surrounding population to create with us.
