In Conversation With x In Print focuses on supporting and promoting self-published (or made for fun / as a portfolio) books, dummies, zines, and works-in-progress work made by practitioners, who feel that their stories are best told through a physical printed medium.
These features on our platform would be accompanied with a short text discussing your design and layout choices as well as the context behind the work.
We are interested in seeing images of your printed portfolios, no matter what stage you are in, the process is as important as the final product.
If you feel like sharing your printed work with us, please get in touch and include a few images (6-10) + a short description of your printed portfolio. The submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, so you can submit anytime!
