Scripps College Hampton Room

Murals, textiles, protest posters, diaries, zines, oral traditions, and cordel literature share a publishing history that rests outside of the mainstream, yet continue to influence book arts and independent publishers today. Stephanie Sauer discusses her interdisciplinary text-based practice in the context of systemic silencing and the dynamic print cultures that have emerged in its wake throughout the Americas.


Stephanie Sauer is an interdisciplinary book artist, publisher, and the author of Almonds Are Members of the Peach Family(winner of the Noemi Book Prize for Prose) and The Accidental Archives of the Royal Chicano Air Force (University of Texas Press). Her work has been exhibited at the De Young Museum, NYC’s Center for Book Arts, and the National Library of Baghdad. She currently serves as a lecturer at the San Francisco Art Institute, founding editor of Copilot Press, and as managing editor of A Bolha Editora in Brazil.
