How The Incantations of Daniel Johnston Came to Be

It's been a long, winding road from when Ricardo Cavolo first shared his comic, El Desorganismo de Daniel Johnston with me. It was on the heels of using his artwork on the cover of Karolina Waclawiak's debut novel, How to Get Into the Twin Palms. Like all Ricardo's work, I was immediately transfixed, my eyeballs absorbed and perhaps in shock. Like a good story, his art features several layers of images within images, which beckons for repeat viewings.

Hi, How Are You

Why All the Cool Kids Really Love Columbus

An article at National Geographic came out yesterday titled 'Why All the Cool Kids Love Columbus, Ohio.' While it touches on some cool facets of our town, it misses the mark about what makes Columbus an exceptional place to live and create.

China and the Imprisoned Hong Kong Booksellers

There seems to be a persistent trickle of news regarding blatant and shocking human rights violations that persist to this day in China. I've seen the documentary about Ai Weiwei, Never Sorry, and was directly made aware of the government's continuing censorship when we published Xiaoda Xiao's books, the novel The Cave Man and his memoir, The Visiting Suit: Stories From My Prison Life.
