New Book Arts Studio opens at Hayden Library

Published Feb. 12, 2024

ASU Library has a new book arts space for the ASU community!

The new Book Arts Studio is located on the third floor of Hayden Library on the Tempe campus. This unique studio space offers a variety of materials the community can use for projects like books and printmaking.

“From printmaking to creating zines, the Book Arts Studio offers a way for anyone to explore various creative processes for class projects or personal exploration,” said Christina Sullivan, coordinator for the Book Arts Studio. “We’re excited to open this space for students, staff, and faculty to explore new equipment such as binding machines, printing presses and book-making materials.”

Open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., reservations can be made to schedule time in the studio and receive guidance from library student workers about using the equipment. 

During an open house on Thursday, Feb. 15 from 3 to 6 p.m., enjoy a short tour and demonstrations; plus get your questions answered about the space. RSVP to attend the open house.

The location of the studio on the third floor situates the Book Arts Studio with other maker services such as Naturespace and Makerspace, as well as the Map and Geospatial Hub and Data Science and Analytics.

“These collaborative spaces not only foster innovation but skill-building opportunities for students in any academic program,” added Sullivan.

Students, faculty, staff and community members are encouraged to stop by Naturespace to check in, schedule or tour and make an appointment. See what sparks your creativity and imagination!
