"Publication is the creation of a Public"

Matthew Stadler, founder of Publication Studio, based in Portland, Oregon. The studio prints and binds books on demand but moreover is "a laboratory for publication in its fullest sense — not just the production of books, but the production of a public. This public, which is more than a market, is created through deliberate acts: the circulation of texts; discussions and gatherings in physical space; and the maintenance of a digital commons. Together these construct a space of conversation, a public space, which beckons a public into being."
