two plum press

Two Plum Press produces slim volumes of literary works both contemporary and classic. Titles include works of poetry, essays, fiction, philosophy, visual art, travel and food writing.

The press operates similarly to an independent record label, where the artists are tied to one another through their friendships, common location, history, and collaborations.

The books are produced entirely in industrial southeast Portland, Oregon. Andrew Barton and Alex Hatzakis letterpress print the dust jackets using hand set lead type. The interiors are printed and bound by Becky Wolfswinkel.

Designer/editor/publisher Andrew Barton is the son of an author and a librarian, grandson of a poet and book store owner. Collecting books since his early youth, he has always gravitated towards those smaller and simpler by design.
