Em Space Book Arts Center was started in the spring of 2008 in a small studio in Portland, Oregon with a group of letterpress and book artists sharing printing and binding equipment and knowledge. Since then, we have settled into a sunny new studio at the start of the Springwater Corridor.
Our goal is to be a welcoming, supportive space and community for individuals to practice book and letterpress arts.
Em space fosters collaborative art endeavors including community partnerships, idea exchange, exhibitions, and education. Em Space provides space and rare equipment to artists and interested community members, and aims to evolve awareness of book and letterpress arts within Portland and beyond while upholding the traditional crafts.
