TXTbooks is an artist-run independent publishing initiative in Brooklyn, NY.
Our interest is in self-publishing as a collective while facilitating projects with outside artists and writers. Our best case scenario is to publish those who have not yet considered producing a zine; Our ultimate goal is to create dumb jokes and passion projects with as many people as possible.
Generally all of our projects are focused through the formal lens of the Risograph printer (MZ790).
TXTbooks was started by Robert Blair, Thomas Colligan, Nichole Shinn & Kurt Woerpel in 2014.
