We thought it was a good idea

The IPRC zine of the month club featured a Pine Island Press publication for September: I Thought It Was a Bad Idea I Just Wanted to Make Sure by Sarah LaPonte! Read more on the IPRC site. Sarah has recently moved to Pittsburgh, where she started her own imprint Half Price Pizza Slice Press. We look forward to seeing her new creations.

Issue Four has been released!

Pine Island Press is having a busy summer! Incandescent Issue Four made it’s debut at the  Portland Zine Symposium last weekend.  It was delightful to have all the Issues lined up in a row and to see reactions to each one. The new cover image by Matt Gainer got a lot of recognition. Issue Four is currently is available online and the first batch has been shipped, so if you already ordered – it is on its way! We hope it will hit store shelves in Portland in the next week or two. PIP will also be tabling at the SF Zine Fest the first weekend of September.  If you are in the area come by our table!

A Look at Portland Bookstores

Portland’s New Boutique Bookstores

We recently came across this nice little piece on Portland’s growing scene of small curated book stores. It was published a while back in Portland Monthly Magazine. Not only are we big fans of all the featured stores (and carried in several of them), but we found that Incandescent Issue Two appears in the slide show. Thanks Reading Frenzy!


LA Art Book Fair

We had an amazing weekend at the LA Art Book Fair. It was held at the The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA. The place was huge and filled with beautiful books, zines, and more! Issue one of Incandescent was one of the publications featured at Kickstarter’s table. We will be posting Issue Three in our online store in the next couple days. We have also added a list of stores that carry Incandescent here: incandescentzine.wordpress.com/locations.
