issue three of little somethings press: a collection of small writings continues the tradition of publishing creatives from around the world in a handmade book made from upcycled materials. Since July of 2019, we have published over 100 artists and writers!
This issue is a 4″x9″ book featuring a beaded clasp, upcycled cardboard, and Trader Joe’s bags. It was printed in color at home on 100% recycled paper, and created between the grading of papers, submitting of assignments, and life in quarantine.
Thank you to all who submitted, contributed, and supported this issue of little somethings press.
