Michael Stadler speaks about Publication Studio (created with co-founder Patricia No), a print-on-demand publisher that serves as a space for publication in its fullest sense. He proposes that publishing doesn’t simply produce books, but also produces new publics through the shared experience of reading. Central to the studio’s philosophy is the creation of a digital commons, where anyone can read and annotate books for free; the dialogue formed by reading is carried into unique social events, such as dinners, symposia and puppet shows. This breathes life into the written word on paper, online and through discussion.

Stadler is a writer and editor from Portland, Oregon, and formerly the editor of Nest magazine and co-founder of Clear Cut Press. Stay tuned to the Bookshelf  and Musagetes for more details about an upcoming collaboration with Matthew Stadler.
