Our Work

We make interactive digital books, artist's books, and letterpress books. We make broadsides. We make video poems. We make animations. We begin with the text.

We open the back pages of Archipelago, our old quarterly journal. Writing that stays new.

The stories say that from the First Beginning the animals talked among themselves and to the humans. They formed partnerships with each other. They called the humans the Campfire People. . .

From the Editor
  • I don’t think we ought to forget him, or what happened in 1955 near Money, Mississippi, when two white men beat the 14-year old Emmett Till to death for verbally insulting (as they saw it) a white woman. A boy who found himself in the wrong neighborhood.

  • In the June 2002 issue of Archipelago, I published an important speech by then-Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis), the only United States senator to have voted against the USA PATRIOT Act.

  • A dozen years ago, the historic legal reading of the Second Amendment was sharply reinterpreted to allow nearly unlimited personal ownership of rifles and pistols, including those designed as man-killers.
