Posts in Portland shops

The Dream of the Nineties

published by Fran Shea

The Zeichen Press shop has a concrete slab for a floor and this — magically — keeps the room from feeling like a sauna until mid-July. Surrounded by all things letterpress, the air thick with a healthy wi-fi signal, and the temperature hovering around a tolerable°, I streamed some Netflix.

And while watching reruns of Portlandia, I bumped into this:powells-booksPowell’s Books.

I paused.

Could it be? Yes, it is! That little bookstore carries Zeichen Press cards!

We’re famous-ish!
