Bend Press began as a hand-made, photocopied zine in 1986. We've progressed throughout the years, issue by issue, project by project, and, in 1994, published our first critically claimed book; I Check the Mail Only When Certain It Has Arrived. Over our 30 year span, we have experimented with formats, content, contributors, design and printing techniques. We guide each and every Bend Press piece — be it an off-set printed book, limited edition hand-bound publication, or art object — with care, from initial concept and creation, to your hands.
We like to think of ourselves as advocates of the arts and willing collaborators. Bend is a small machine, but we are dreamers with fire, big ideas and good intentions.
Email us, with your thoughts or ideas, projects or recipies. You never know.
We would also like to express our gratitude to all the folks who've supported us throughout the years. We couldn't have done it without you — or continue on without you. Thank you, Friends Of Bend.
