Our next book was read in the studio yesterday, with the amazing Naomi Moon Siegel behind the controls and dials! We’re so excited to ship “The After” with a CD containing a song commissioned by the Syrinx Effect, a reading of the book-lenght poem by Melinda Mueller, and one additional surprise file that’s guaranteed to smash your heart to bits.

We’re finalizing production and will begin shipping “The After” at the end of September. It will make a special gift for anyone in your life with an interest in poetry and how we’re telling the story of the current mass extinction we’re responsible for.

Popular Songs: A Short Delay!

By Books, Learning How to Be a Publisher No Comments

We are sad to announce that we will have a short delay on Popular Songs: The Political Poems of 1819-1820 by our man, Shelley.  Alas, there was a glitch that can sometimes happen between paper stock (ours is luscious) and presses.  So while we work that out with our press, we can always look on the bright side and say, “We have seen the book and you will love it!” and we can also say, as new publishers might, “Wow. We did not see that typo before!”  I think the cliché being, Every dark cloud has a silver lining…

We will update the shipping date when we have it, but we’re hoping April 22. Of course, pre-orders will be shipped the day this book arrives as we can’t wait to get this in the mail to you.

Here's a bit of the interior spread, though in this picture you might also see the mechanical crease that won't be in the books we're shipping!

Cafe Weekend is a sweet little coffee shop on the edge of the Central District in Seattle. Well, it looks little, but it has a huge room hiding in the back perfect for working, meeting the neighbors and reading a book. One thing we have always admired is their carefully curated bookshelf, with a rotating theme, with a nice focus on local comics, art and design. You get a real sense of the owner’s interest, not only intellectually, but in the community around her.

So it’s a great honor to have our “Twelve Saints” right here in the neighborhood we publish from on her shelves. If you’re in the Central District, stop by and have a cup of coffee or a cookie and enjoy one of Seattle’s best kept secrets.

We think following Cafe Weekend on Instagram is the way to go:  @cafeweekend

Outtakes from Nia Michaels’ Studio Session

By Books

Each of our collaboration books has a full color fold-out of the artist’s work space. Why? Because its something we’re always curious about and know our readers are too. Here are some shots from Nia Michaels’ studio that we liked, but didn’t make the cut for the back of Twelve Saints.
