News: John is working on fabric slurries using his new Ninja pro blender and retting inner barks, okkra stems and poppy straw for additives. Also drying flower petals – cornflower, bee balm, chicory, sunflowers, crepe myrtle.
Much as I love papermaking, where I’m best qualified and most knowledgable, this site and my book arts focus elsewhere. If I could be anywhere working, it would be in this shop, printing on the paper I make. Probably a new bookmark – sure to check out the quotes page. Contact me about any of this at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Paper Plant website at Netweed
The Paper Plant Press publishes broadsides, folders and chapbooks using handlaid recycled paper and letterpress printing in conjunction with current desktop publishing technologies. From 1983-90, the Paper Plant bookstore sponsored a weekly open poetry series, and many of the chapbook authors emerged from that setting. Twenty published titles include award-winning alternative literature, a fine arts calendar, and a children’s book. Many of our writers regularly feature as performance poets. We seek to present an alternative take on the publishing process, looking for non-academic, even non-literary influences, in a search for poetry as an oral art, in a belief that poetry is an essential and multifarious expression of life.
