Two Augusts In A Row In A Row, Shelley Marlow's novel and the seventh book in Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers Series, is a love letter between generations of queer women. Set in New York City in 2001, we follow Phillip—a gender subversive drag king in search of grace and magic—through rich, sad, humorous language that is singularly Shelley Marlow's.
This special first limited run of 200 Artist's Edition copies in pink includes 24 full color and black and white reproductions of original artworks by Shelley Marlow including ink on rice paper drawings, watercolors, and tempera and oil paintings. The covers were hand letterpress printed in both silver and black (100 each) by book artist and printer Maureen Cummins on a Vandercook press at the Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York.

Kevin Killian writes, "I've been dying for something first rate and innovative and have found this in Marlow's writing. Her hero, Phillip/Philomena...is the most enchanting and elusive central character in a novel since Cassandra in Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle. While many have compared Marlow to the late Jane Bowles, I would agree if only there was a loving and empathetic Jane Bowles, and now there is and here is her book.
