Featherproof Not Featherweight
Posted by: Keir Graff
A new, old idea. The old part: books by subscription. The new part: limited editions based on the number of subscribers. Tiny (but scrappy) Chicago publisher featherproof now has its first imprint, paper egg. (Bring back uppercase letters, say I . . . wait a minute . . . bring back copyeditors who enforce consistent use of upper- and lowercase letters.)
Anyway, I like the way they think. It’s a fun idea that doesn’t demand that I change my definition of “book.”
And publishing could definitely use some ideas right about now. Anyway, I’m subscribing to this new, old idea.
