The bindery

Tying Together Arts & Letters in Milwaukee


The Bindery is a historic, community workspace
that unites book and literary artisans through shared access to the tools, resources and knowledge they need to flourish.


Where do writers gather daily to work beyond the walls of their own home or coffee shops?  Where do they mingle with storytellers or collaborate with literary educators and publishing companies?  Where do poets run innovative courses with skilled book artisans, while lead type is cast and pages are sewn on midcentury machinery?

The Bindery.


We're saving a local, 4th-generation family book-making facility by reimagining it as shared hub: a welcoming space for word-lovers, typography gurus, slam artists, and all those seeking & finding inspiration through the literary world.
