Reading Frenzy ~ An Independent Press Emporium
A selection of hand-picked gems from our downtown Portland store. Minimum order of $8.
An irreverent, charming mash up of art, writing, and food, Put An Egg On It focuses on the creativity and social importance of cooking. Not your typical food porn publication of unattainable delights, impossible creations, and overstylized food, Put An Egg On It celebrates the memory of food, good and bad, epic brunches, midnight cravings, and our connection to place through specific meals. Issue #6 features Sandwiches in New Orleans, the Smoked Eel of New York, sardines, and plenty of fun, pantry clearing recipes.
The Ride Journal is a beautifully designed and produced publication devoted to personal stories about cycling. Every issue is full color, with a wrap around cover (this issue features artwork by Shan Jiang), and minimal ads. This issue features an impressive 56 writers paired with at least as many illustrators and photographers. The publishers state that, "The Ride Journal is here to tell the tales that belong to riders. Whatever bikes they ride and wherever they choose to ride. We also hope to do so in a way that showcases the wealth of creativity that fills the world of cycling." Published in the UK, with international contributors, all the profits from The Ride Journal are donated to charity.
