San Pedro, California, United States
Bend started as a hand-made zine in 1986. We've progressed throughout the years, issue by issue, project by project, and, in 1994, published our first, critically acclaimed book; "I Check the Mail Only When Certain It Has Arrived." Over our 30 year span, we have experimented with formats, content, contributors, design and printing techniques. We guide each and every Bend Press piece — be it an off-set printed book, limited edition hand-bound publication, or art object — with care, from the initial concept and creation, until it reaches your hands.
We like to think of ourselves as advocates of the arts and willing collaborators. We are dreamers -- a small machine with big ideas and good intentions.
