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, Mindy Seu, Jenna Jorgensen, Hana Cohn, and Lexi Visco became the primary publishers for PS San Francisco.
In 2018 Calvin Rocchio and Lexi Visco relocated PSSF to its new home within the magic space of 2727 California Street; a project we named P.E. Area. P.E. Area ran from 2018–2020, and was a gathering and an accumulation of perspectives, a space to host sprawling collaborations and publications.
