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 www.publicationstudio.biz for more detailed information.
