Hand-made poetics, experimental translation and collective practice.
Girasol Press sits between the world of poetry-pamphlet publishing, which is often fast and ephemeral, and the slow-paced ethos of the artist-book. We foster collective practice, often working between design and text with old print technologies. We use an Adana 8×5 traditional hand-press, or work with local risograph studios, depending on the project. We are interested in giving space to overlooked voices and languages. Our series Girasol Collab is a meeting-place for community publishing projects. If you have an idea for a possible collaboration or publication, do get in touch.
