NEW STORES: The Paper Cave & Weightless Books
Courtesy of two of the best book producers I know: Zach Dodson (of featherproof books) and Caroline Picard (of Green Lantern Gallery & Press): a new independent online book store, and rumored brick&mortar location in Chicago. All sorts of local favorites are among the first titles presented. This has me really excited; nice to see another outlet for great books gathered, as well as a built in support system for readings and other art.
And next: Weightless Books, an ebook store. Again: lots of great presses, all sorts of prices and formats (all DRM free). Fill up those chips. Say goodbye to money.
Zach Dodson and Amelia Gray talk shop over at the Powell’s book blog, about finalizing a book, publishing, monsoons, and $$$. “For a long while Jonathan (my partner in featherproof) was playing the lottery with the sole purpose of funding the press.”
