Welcome to Wellesley's Book Arts Program! Housed on the 4th floor of Clapp Library and Pendleton West, the Book Arts Program invites you to explore letterpress printing, papermaking, and bookbinding.
Book Arts at Wellesley is focused on introducing students to the art of bookmaking through historical and hands-on study. Students learn about every step of the book construction process, from making the paper to printing the text to binding it all together. Whether you're here to learn more about the history of bookmaking, specific techniques, or looking for a career in book arts, this guide is here to help!
