Join us to celebrate the release of the SCAFFOLD book by local artists Jesse Eisenhower & Veronica Graham! We’ll also be showing the entire Scaffold I, screen printed as one long quilted banner!
“VA Graham & JA Eisenhower’s Scaffold tells the story of a migratory people living on a world-sized structure, which is itself constantly on the move. Graham and Eisenhower draw at a fixed, ant farm-like scale, creating layouts that form one big, continuous space, along with maps that allow the reader to follow the mazy narrative in its entirety from a birds eye view.”
We’re happy to finally have all 3 Scaffold issues collected into a single book. Matt at/aka Hic & Hoc prompted us to do this (by offering to publish it), and it wound up being a great opportunity to smooth a lot of things out. Plus, we got to scale up the art panels a little and add some interstitial illustrations. It’ll be fun showing it to people at SPX this weekend.
You can buy the new book direct from us here.
Or buy it from Hic & Hoc here.
Yes we will be at SF Zinefest this weekend. This is always a nice laid back event, free to the public. Gets bigger every year, but it’s not overwhelming. Table #53.

We’re leading up to the debut of the Scaffold Volume 1 collection at SPX next month by selling our Scaffold books at half off. These are the hand-bound ones with silkscreened covers that we’ve been selling for years. It’s a good opportunity for anyone who wants to see what Scaffold is all about for a relatively cheap price. Or for anyone who likes to have precious artifacts. Scarves are on sale too.
DK2 is the second iteration of a virtual reality mask intended to be used by software developers, though lots of enthusiastic video gamers are buying them just for kicks. We’ve been working on some 3D world stuff of our own so we’re excited to have one of these kits to experiment with.
After messing around with it for a while yesterday, I’d say it’s like scuba diving with a mask you bought at Pick ‘n Save. The first few moments are completely thrilling. But the slight physical discomfort, the limited visual fidelity and the rigmarole of setting up the kit, all add to the feeling that you’re very stubbornly trying to have an experience. Eventually you get to a place where you can take it for what it is: practically miraculous, obviously going to change everything.
