This centre, dedicated to the graphic arts, which opened in 2011, has its origins in the 19th Century, in the old Imprenta y Litografía Municipal. It covers an area of 3,500 square metres spread over three floors. Its main mission is to conserve and disseminate the cultural heritage of the graphic arts and their printing and binding techniques. It is home to over 3,000 items, including a printing press from the 17th Century, a rolling press from 1789 and a Planeta typographic machine from 1930.
In addition to a permanent exhibition entitled Printing and the book: a history, La Imprenta Municipal organises temporary exhibitions related with books and the graphic world, along with workshops and other activities open to the public. As well as its dissemination and education work, it provides binding services, documentary restoration and edition of publications for Madrid's City Council.
