Letterpress printed book of short stories from Taipei City, Taiwan.

Contains 2 stories, all hand typeset and printed on my Adana 8x5 press. 2 black and white photographs, hand-printed in a darkroom. Japanese stab binding.

As the books are letterpressed, there are imperfections in the text. But this makes them unique.

Each book is numbered, as part of a small run of 22 books in total.

The stories are my own fiction, not published anywhere else. They were written in Taipei City, inspired by its feel.


She rubbed her wrist as she stood in the MRT, trying to get at the itch that had been plaguing her all evening. It was in her right arm, just on the joint, on the outer side. It was making her irritable. An old man wearing a stained wifebeater stared at her, and Julia gave a glare containing more venom than usual, making him avert his eyes. Even this small victory did not please her much. She just wanted to be home, shut in her flat, insulated from the life of the city.
