Publication Studio is an experiment in sustainable publication that prints and binds books on demand, creating original work with artists and writers. Publication Studio is a laboratory for publication—not just the production of books, but the production of a public. This public, which is more than a market, is created through deliberate acts, the circulation of texts, discussions, and gatherings in physical space, and the maintenance of a digital commons. Please visit for more detailed information.



The Publication Studio summer residency is the first in an occasional series of storefront residencies at UNIT/PITT, providing time-limited space to artist-run initiatives that engage critically with cultural production.

UNIT/PITT Projects (formerly the Helen Pitt Gallery) gratefully acknowledges the financial assistance of the Canada Council, the British Columbia Arts Council, the City of Vancouver, and the individual artists, cultural workers and community members without whom we would be unable to continue.
