The Book Studio is part of the Printmedia & Drawing Workshop.

Studio resources include an intaglio editioning press, relief print drying racks, an intaglio print drying cupboard, a Graphix cylinder proofing letterpress, twelve cabinets of metal type, a number of drawers of wooden type, a photopolymer relief-plate casting machine, a boxboard guillotine, a book guillotine, a bookbinding vice, assorted bookbinding tools, a simple computer setup with an inkjet printer, and a small display area.

These resources are available to Honours and Postgraduate students, Staff, Visiting Artists and Alumni Artists-in-Residence.

The studio has an undergraduate ‘Book’ Complimentary course on Mondays and holds the occasional public workshop on letterpress or bookbinding.

There is a weekly 'Book Clinic' time for drop-in advice about planning and producing artist's books each Wednesday (during term times) between 10am and 2.30pm. The Book Studio Technical Officer, Caren Florance, has a wide range of book-related interests and skills. Book Clinic is available to all Honours and Postgraduate students at the School of Art.

Residencies are available upon application of a written proposal. They can range from a short one-off project to a semester-long residency. Applications should be submitted to the lecturer-in-charge John Pratt.
