Publication Studio uses inexpensive machinery to make perfect-bound books “fresh each day,” by hand. Despite uncanny methods, the success of Publication Studio lies in a shared sentiment –- that publication is not just the manufacturing of books, but the production of a public.
Unlike a market, a public is difficult to quantify. It is impossible to chart on a graph or contain in a spreadsheet. The public that is Publication Studio -– our network of sibling studios, collaborators, libraries, book stores and readers -– is the result of pre-existing connections, friendships, a modest web-presence and word of mouth.
