We publish across platforms, mediums, and "the universe." Our paper books are collectible art items, not unlike Dale Earnhardt commemorative plates. Our e-books are not paper books melted onto the screen but experiences aware of their digital space. We also publish experimental multimedia projects: poetry videos and poetry video games. But we call them all books. We are literature with feet—for open mics and reading tours—and fingers—for online workshops and collaborative projects. But we call it all live. We are literature with a passiflora caerulea for a rotor. We land on your head.
