Great Regulars: Handmade publishing is what IPRC has been

all about since its founding in 1998. Anyone can join up and learn to use the letterpress or the binding machine to turn their writing and art into something real; hundreds of zines and independent comics poured out of the cramped upstairs offices on Southwest Oak Street near Reading Frenzy and Powell's City of Books. It was the right time for the Do It Yourself movement in Portland, and the IPRC was in the right place in the culture pocket around West Burnside Street.
