Publication Studio (founded in 2009 in Portland, Oregon) is an international network of sibling studios, with a presence in thirteen cities including New York, London, Rotterdam and now, Glasgow! Publication Studio prints and binds books one at a time on-demand, creating original work with artists and writers they admire. They attend to the social life of the book. A laboratory for publication in its fullest sense—not just the production of books, but the production of a public. Together these construct a space of conversation which beckons a public into being.

My Bookcase along with partners Good Press Gallery, A Feral Studio, artist Joanna Peace & Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), have joined forces to bring Publication Studio to Glasgow: a publishing enterprise as well as an open source printing facility housed at CCA. Two inductions were run during PS Glasgow launch event. These inductions take place every 6-8 weeks and have a fee of 5GBP to cover costs. Once inducted you can have access to the facilities by contacting CCA and booking for a day or half-day.

Publication Studio Glasgow launched during Book Week Scotland (November 2016). For the launch, two workshops/inductions were hosted and two manuals for using the facilites were created. The event finished with a live-comic performance by artist Malcy Duff.
