Publication Studio is a laboratory for publication in its fullest sense — not just the production of books, but the production of a public. This public, which is more than a market, is created through physical production, digital circulation, and social gathering.
Publication Studio Bay Area is part of an international network of independently run sibling Publication Studios. In 2011, PS Berkeley was founded by Colter Jacobsen, and in 2012, the studio became PS Oakland under Ian Dolton-Thornton. In 2017, Lexi Visco, Mindy Seu, Jenna Jorgensen, and Hana Cohn became the primary publishers for PS San Francisco.
In 2018 PSSF relocated to its new home within the magic space of 2727; a project we are calling P.E. Area. Print Experimentation Area is a gathering and an accumulation of perspectives, a space to host sprawling collaborations and publications. Through a residency program, print room, workshops, newsletter, and occasional picnics, we hope to support open and generous ways of making and distributing publications within a community. Lexi Visco and Calvin Rocchio currently run PSSF and P.E. Area ☼
