Clear Cut Press

From the 1599 publication by Richard de Bury, Philobiblion, to this moment, writing about feelings about books is a long tradition. Clear Cut Press brings up the desire to write about loving books. In an interview with editor Matthew Stadler and publisher Richard Jensen, Jensen observed:
we decided early on that our publishing business would be about producing and circulating beautiful pocket-sized books, and not about controlling the authors’ texts or squirting them around on the internet. We really admired that books are machines that keep running for decades. For Clear Cut Press, publishing is the physical business of literature.
