Pluralities, or: It's finally here!
Avi Silver's novella is a slipstream-meets-space-adventure all about one person’s complex journey into nonbinary identity. Complete with nineteen illustrations by Brianna Tosswill, it is a triumph of colour and tenderness alike, and we are so excited to be sharing it with you in Summer 2020.
We're bringing you two editions as usual: paperback and fine press. Because the fine press run is made by hand (handbound spines, individually marbled covers, full of beautiful linocut prints, speckled with shimmer), each copy is visually unique. See the examples below alongside the comic-style cover further down for the unlimited edition of paperbacks! You can preorder here now! You can preview the product pages for Fine Press and Paperback at these links. You can also check out PLURALITIES, OR on Goodreads. Our advance readers have been loving it.
Pluaralities, or - Avi Silver
"Wait—rewind. I was still a girl back then, before the universes converged."
Guided by premonitions and a fateful car ride, a burned-out retail worker stumbles into the grand exit from womanhood. Meanwhile, in a galaxy not so far away, an alien prince goes rogue with his sentient spaceship, seeking purpose in the great glimmering void. As the two of them come together in a fusion of mind and body, they must reckon with the identities that have been assigned to them.
Tender and daring, Pluralities, or is a slipstream-meets-space-adventure story honouring the long and turbulent journey into gender euphoria.
Also available as a fine press book here.
We make really pretty books.
This is independent publishing for those who care deeply about the experience of the book in addition to its contents. If we could make them smell just a little musty, we would, but in reality you're more likely to catch a whiff of rubber-based ink from the letterpress process. The Pink of the Seams by Sanna Wani is wrapped in an envelope that feels like a starchy quilt, and protects the vulnerable feelings expressed inside. The Midnight Garden by Gabrielle Crowley has been kissed, literally, twice on every copy. Let the body language of our books speak to you.
