Estepa Editions

Posted on 02/19/2011


The book is  the ideal space for an intimate collaboration between artists, writers/poets, translators and artisans.  From the 1970’s I was making one-of-a-kind cloth books to document my painting and enlarge on them. At that time there was a real fever in the art world around artists’ books: the appearance, production and distribution was completely changing. Making the one-of-a-kind into a simple multiple struck me as perfect ground to touch a larger audience.The next step was to give this small independent press a name. EstepaEditions was created in 1996 as an independent press.
