The Book Arts Lab, located in Carleton’s MacOdrum Library, opened in 2020. It is the centre of books arts practice on campus, featuring vintage printing presses and type, traditional bookbinding equipment, tools for calligraphy and relief block cutting, paper decorating facilities, and workshop space. The Department of English offers courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels that take place in the lab, a space that enables the analysis of print culture (and communications more generally) alongside experiential learning opportunities.
