This is a select cross-section of the Bend Press publications. We began in 1986, secretly making photocopied zines on a "borrowed" machine. We kept getting way with it, so we kept doing it. Over the years there has been a steady progression in content and craftsmanship, issue by issue, and, in 1994, we published our first book, Bend #16, I Check the Mail Only When Certain It Has Arrived.
Many of our 26 publications are out of print, but there are a few still available in the Bend Store. You can also see & read Bend Press #7, #23, and #24 in digital form, on the Issuu site. We will eventually offer more downloadable editions.
Bend continues to experiment with formats, content, contributors, design and printing techniques throughout the years. We guide each and every project — be it an off-set printed book, or a limited edition, hand-bound zine — with care, from concept, curation and layout, to printing and distributing. We're still chugging away.
