Two Plum Press has an apprentice! Alex Hatzakis met us at the Portland Zine Symposium in 2015, then was working a shift at People's Food Co-Op with Sofie Sherman-Burton, recognized her, and offered up her services to help out the operation. Since the operation is usually just Andrew, struggling along, and Sofie assisting when and how she can, this help was accepted and encouraged.
Several months later, Ms. Hatzakis is now a fully trained letterpress printer, who helps with most stages of production on our books. The above photos shows Andrew and Alex creasing dust jackets!
She worked on the production of our spring release "Awake, Wild, Secret, Free" by Andrew Barton, and our summer titles, "Pop" by Chris Maday and "The Collected Plays 2010-2015" by Portland Preschoolers.
