About us

A Publication Studio is a workplace where publication happens. Conversations, socializing, and physical labor lead to books that are available in all forms, material and digital.  The social life of the book is hosted there. The Studios share books with each other by uploading them (as PDF files) to a book cloud available in common to all Publication Studios. Any Studio can make and sell any book to anyone who wants one. They charge the price set by the Studio that originated a book and agree to give half the profit of that sale to the author.

Currently there are eleven active Publication Studio sibling studios, and several more on hiatus or otherwise inactive.
