Minnesota Center for Book Arts
Whether you are strolling through the exhibit space or browsing through the hand-made paper items in the gift shop, you will find something to make you stop and say "ooh." Anyone who has a love affair with anything paper will want to at least purchase a handmade note card or grab a schedule to see what classes are being offered. Wear your old jeans and shoes that can get wet when you take a class. You will come away with a new appreciation for the history of book-making and the beautiful things that are possible using these art forms. Located in the Open Book literary center, the MCBA's mission is to make sure that no one forgets the joy of touching books. Classes are offered in paper making, binding techniques, printing, and many other varied art forms, and the schedule always includes something for kids.
