TXTbooks is an artist-run independent publishing initiative in Brooklyn, NY.
Our interest is in self-publishing and 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 Risograph printed on am MZ790 (Previously v8000).
The project was started by Robert Blair, Thomas Colligan, Nichole Shinn & Kurt Woerpel in 2014.
Since then TXTbooks has exhibited annually at the NYABF and shown work at LAABF, Odds and Ends, Toronto Art Book Fair, and a handful of others.
Printed Matter, Draw-Down, Picture Room, Ti Pi Tin, Colette, Atomic Books, Bookish Baltimore.
