Currently in production: BOUND—the new annual compilations for the Bloof Books chapbook series.

Each chapbook is presented pretty much as it originally appeared, with color photos of the original covers. Some of the chapbooks also include other illustrations.

For reasons both practical and aesthetic, the chapbooks will not be arranged in chronological order, within the volumes. We've decided that's better, for this particular reading experience. The chronology will be included in the backmatter, which will also provide descriptions of the original handmade editions, and an index of titles.

BOUND seeks to make the chapbook series more accessible for teaching and distribution, and to provide an alternative format for readers who prefer collecting paperbacks.

Coming soon.

So fresh!

The Bloof Store got a mini makeover. Feel free to test if for us and let us know if you find any bugs (besides our bee). 

Thanks to your input, we're keeping PayPal as a second option, as an alternative to the Square-powered store.

We're working (slowly) on a complete redesign of our website, which involves a change of platform and a bunch of boring behind-the-scenes stuff. But this temporary refresh of the store should make shopping for our stuff more pleasant in the meantime!
