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.
TheIPRC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit whose mission is to facilitate creative expression, identity and community by providing individual access to tools and resources for creating independently published media and artwork. We are located in Portland, Oregon USA and have a risograph studio featuring three GR3700 printers and an assortment of drums.
