Half Letter Press

We have finished printing the covers for what will be the next Temporary Services booklet: a reprint of TS member Marc Fischer’s essay “Against Competition.” The booklet has illustrations by Kione Kochi on nearly every page and a new Afterword by Fischer. This is our very first booklet that will have been made entirely on a RISOGRAPH. It’s actually our first booklet that will have been made using a RISO at all!
You’ll be able to see this and many other booklets in Temporary Services’ Publishing Clearing House project that will be part of the upcoming exhibit “A Proximity of Consciousness: Art and Social Action” at the Sullivan Galleries at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Sept. 20 - Dec. 20, 2014).

It’s looking pretty white for now but paint is coming soon and once we move in with a RISO, digital copiers, piles of paper, and more, this will be Temporary Services’ Publishing Clearing House.

Marc and I visited the fabricator that is making some of the furniture for Temporary Services’ Publishing Clearing House. The place was in my old neighborhood and this great old sign was next door. #publishingclearinghouse #artistbooks

It was great to meet the Draw Down Books folks at the Medium Cool fair and extra nice to see their appreciation of our design work! Coming from these people, that means a lot!
