Back in Action!Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair, October 13–16
A life without bookfairs for a publisher is almost no life at all. I have so missed the radiant energy of curious, passionate readers, the delight of watching someone discover something previously unknown, the fascinating conversations with strangers, the camaraderie of publishing colleagues, the luscious feeling of being in the world—and in a bit of the world that appreciates the great labors of love of small press publishers. It’s been such a very long time! So do come say hello, fondle the new siglio books (and old), and revel in book fair heaven. —LP

“In my opinion, genre is a way of speaking about conventions of reading and looking, where you sit or stand and whether you’re allowed to talk to other people or move around while you’re communing with an object or text.” —Lucy Ives, from her interview with Karla Kelsey in Feminist Poetics of the Archive at Tupelo Quarterly[...]
