The Evening Redness in the Lemonade

Posted by Tobias Carroll

Today marks the public launch of the indie press and online community/workshop Red Lemonade. As founder Richard Nash says in an introductory blog post:

So the seeming radicalism of the Cursor project, as expressed here at Red Lemonade, is not contrary to the historical spirit of publishing but consonant with it. Being opposed to technology is profoundly at odds with the book business because what is the book but technology, technology that has been smoothed and sanded by repeated contact with human society into the most comfortable technology we have, as taken for granted as our clothes, product of the looms.

The whole thing is worth reading, and the press — with books from Lynne Tillman, Kio Stark, and Vanessa Vesekla — looks to be off to a strong start as well.
