University of Iowa Center for the Book

Address:

Director: 
Matthew P. Brown

The Center for the Book is an innovative, interdisciplinary research and arts unit located within the University of Iowa Graduate College. The University of Iowa Center for the Book is a unique program that conjoins training in the technique and artistry of bookmaking with research into the history and culture of books. The Center is staffed by artists, scholars, critics, and craftworkers, and is distinguished both by this range and by faculty members who combine two or more of these roles. Studio-based experience brings new knowledge to research and criticism while the historical and cultural frameworks of book studies inform and inspire artistic expression. We maintain dedicated studios in letterpress printing, bookbinding, and papermaking.The Center offers curricula available to graduate and undergraduate students, as well as to the Eastern Iowa community.
