Small Press Spotlight
This Sunday, April 19th, at 4pm, New Vessel Press will host an event featuring a discussion on the history and development of the press, including a showcase of current and future titles. New Vessel Press was founded in New York City in 2012 and is an independent publishing house specializing in the translation of foreign literature into English.
Looking forward to this event, we interviewed cofounders Ross Ufberg and Michael Z. Wise about the press and upcoming publications...
For this Small Press Spotlight, we are so pleased to feature an interview with Krystal Languell, Jennifer Firestone and Saretta Morgan at Belladonna*, a small press whose mission is to "promote the work of women writers who are adventurous, experimental, politically involved, multi-form, multicultural, multi-gendered, impossible to define, delicious to talk about, unpredictable and dangerous with language." We would like to thank Julia and the Belladonna* team for the interview and hope you will come visit our small press section at our 112th St. location, showcasing unique publications from Belladonna* as well as many other presses locally based in New York City.
For this Small Press Spotlight, we are featuring an interview with the three editors of Projective Industries, a small press that publishes beautifully designed, handmade letterpressed chapbooks. We would like to thank the editors for the interview and hope you will come visit our small press table, showcasing unique publications from Projective Industries as well as many other presses locally based in New York City.
Yelena Bryksenkova is a Russian born illustrator based in New Haven, Connecticut. Using vibrant colors and amazing detail, Bryksenkova's drawings depict scenes of everyday life that are anything but ordinary. In her work that toes the line between being dreamy and realistic, the familiar is fantastically alive: every object and creature--whether a face, tree, table, dress, imaginary elephant--buzzes with personality.
Led by Managing Editor Alexandra Watson and Editor-At-Large Melody Nixon
