Publikators is conceived as an infinite series of projects, plans, ideas, concepts and events, each taking a closer look at the creation of books. We take a lateral sideways approach to conventional ‘publishing’ and the business of making books: we are as interested in what happens during the ‘making-of’ a book as in all that goes on after a book enters the world leaves the ‘shop’. Instead of mourning the death of print, we are determined to explore all the unexpected opportunities that open up with the widening of the gap between printed and digital media.
