I Dig Publication Studio

Wait For It is a collection of analog photography. These were bound and assembled in a limited edition of thirty by Publication Studio in Portland, Oregon. Each set of three books are bound together with a letterpressed chipboard band and enumerated with the edition number on the title page. Each book lists the cameras used and is an assemblage of personal favorites from the last several years
Their website reads, "Publication Studio is an experiment in sustainable publication. We print and bind books on demand, creating original work with artists and writers we admire, books that both respond to the conversation of the moment and can endure. We attend to the social life of the book, cultivating a public that cares and is engaged. Publication Studio is a laboratory for publication in its fullest sense — not just the production of books, but the production of a public. This public, which is more than a market, is created through deliberate acts: the circulation of texts; discussions and gatherings in physical space; and the maintenance of a digital commons. Publication Studio also offers fee-based services, including: perfect binding, publication strategies, including social, material, and digital practices."
