Introducing Dos Press!

My my, things are hot down Texas way. Another Texas-based press sends news:
Dos Press will be publishing handmade chapboos, coedited by C.J. Martin and Julia Drescher.

Each series includes four books published over (roughly) the course of a year. Each book consists of one longer and two shorter chaps from three different authors. The dos-a-dos format: 1 book, 2 spines, 3 authors.

In the first book, set to release in the next few weeks:

Poems, by Hoa Nguyen
Therefore You Are That Other One You Love, by Carter Smith
Incident Light Poem, by Andrea Strudensky

The first book also features cover linocuts designed by Scott Webel and Jen Hirt, co-curators of The Museum of Natural & Artificial Ephemerata in Austin, TX.

Selections from the first book can be read in the first issue of Little Red Leaves. Pics can be viewed from our Flickr site.

The first series includes work from nine other poets in three books.

Poets in the first two series:

Rosa Alcalá (Poems & Translations)
Michelle Detorie
Johannes Göransson (Poems & Translations)
Ashley Smith
Brian Mornar
Tess Coody-Anders
Michael Cross
Julia Drescher

  • I just want to say how wonderful these look in real life. I'll blog more when I have time, but these are books you'll want to get your hands on before they run out.
