  • OUR PEER GROUP

    OUR PEER GROUP

    We've added a new section, PEERS. The beauty of the small publishing community is fellowship, collaboration and sharing. Bend, and specifically, myself, are forever greatful for this form of expression and communication... and to the postman/woman. Stuffing an envelope with ephemera, sealing it, stamping it, and sending it, is in our DNA. Peers is a small way for us to keep the circle of small publishing rolling by introducing some of the great publications we've received in the mail. Please take some time and click on the links, most of these publishers are selling and, at times, trading. If you're lucky, you'll make some lifelong friends like I have. And bookmark the page, Bend will be constantly adding more... as long as the flow continues. Keep the paper work coming.  —Jenkins

  • BLOWING IT UP

    BLOWING IT UP

    The image you are looking at is a 7' tall mural, in Berlin, Germany. MBU Street Zine Six, is created by the multi-talented, Sergej Vutuc. He's taken the typical 5.5" x 8.5", copy-machine printed zine format, and gigantasized it, wheat-pasted it around the city, and invited anyone and everyone to see/read it. Issue six happens to be an homage to the early Bend zines. Follow Sergej's work — always original, interesting, well done and sitting comfortably at the crossroads of art, photography and publishing.

  • ASK THE DUST

    ASK THE DUST

    Look what we found amonst our many shelves of dusty archives, buried behind our stack of publishing awards... a box of Mike Daily's novel, Valley, Bend Press #15, originally released in 1998. We're excited, to say the least. Watch for more detailed images of its unique prose and layout on the Bend site soon. Mike, a box of them are headed your way.

    Little know fact; a section of Valley is illustrated by Evan Hecox. You can get your own copy of Valley in the Bend Store soon.
