RoughBooks is a caleidoscopic project, based in Lisbon (Portugal), that aims to explore the rough and often overlooked uniqueness of the self-publishing world. We’re mainly an independent creative studio focused on Risograph printing, facilitating the production of small scale publications, artist books, posters, flyers, and any other graphic objects. In parallel we also have our own publishing house where we regularly publish zines, books, and other limited edition works by various artists and illustrators that we feel are rough enough.
Ediciones El Fuerte is a small publisher project from Buenos Aires that makes zines and posters using risograph and etching. Based on illustration, graphic story, abstraction, and concepts about science, travel, cosmos, cultures, obsessions, they make zines and graphic work investigating different printing techniques, where the analog and the handcraft are the main characters. Even if El Fuerte is a young project they already have been in several fairs in Buenos Aires , Santiago de Chile and London.
Hverdag Books was founded in 2016 by the American-Norwegian artist Jessica Williams as a way to release her own artist books.
Since 2018 (stay tuned!) the project is rapidly growing and has the aim of becoming the leading accessible platform for those working with artist publications in Norway today. In Europe the CZ180 is also known as the CV3230.
