Shop KBAC

 

The KBAC book arts store is your source for materials to fuel your creativity and handmade objects from inspired imaginations.

Visit us at the Kalamazoo Book Arts Center to buy handmade papers, handmade journals, decorative papers, greeting cards, bookbinding materials and supplies. A section of handmade books are available for purchase online.

 In an effort to reduce waste, we take trimmings and other excess materials left from prior productions and bind them into new books that can be used for art, writing or both. Since these books are made from finite materials, our stock will change often with each design a limited supply. 

Each book is handmade by KBAC interns and as such will look slightly different with some having minor imperfections.
