The Shop at MCBA



Welcome to The Shop at MCBA!

The Shop at MCBA is a haven for the unabashedly bookish.

From cards and journals, to handmade artists’ books and fine print editions—plus unique art supplies and creative gifts for kids—The Shop at MCBA offers one of the most unique shopping experiences around, seven days a week.

Plus, your purchase helps support MCBA’s mission. As a nonprofit 501(c)3, MCBA relies on income from The Shop to help us engage thousands of people a year in the book arts – from artists and adult learners to children and families. It also helps MCBA to continue its role as the largest, most comprehensive center for book arts in the country, offering programs that are inspirational, educational, and accessible.

Shop Local and Handmade!

We are proud to be able to offer the work of over 300 local, national, and international consignment artists in The Shop. Artists’ work includes hand printed cards, broadsides, prints, journals, zines, and fine art collector books. When you purchase a piece of consignment art in The Shop, you are directly supporting artists—all artists represented through our consignment program receive 70% of sales. That’s a purchase you can feel good about!
