a. How did you start the press, and what is your hope for its future?
I started the press in 1995 with the intention of doing handmade chapbooks of the work of some of my many very talented poet friends. My first books were my own Guest Chain (online at http://www.lavenderink.org/guestchain/xp00.htm) and Rogue Embryo by Camille Martin. The first perfect bound book I did was Lower 48 by Joel Dailey.
