Art empowers. Art amplifies. Art connects. At Minnesota Center for Book Arts, we celebrate the book as a vibrant contemporary art form that takes many shapes. Through paper, ink, and thread, we tell our stories together.

Whether you are visiting us for the first time or are a master artisan, this is your space. All are welcome.
