Dear Reader

Dear Reader is an occasional, yet focused forum that presents publications (some in process, some existing, some just seeing the light) and unpacks their processes of making. Dear Reader connects concerns and concepts with hands-on practice and interpersonal conversations and it often does so through experimental formats of presentation. By inviting editors, designers, readers and writers to participate, we act as interested readers and hosts.

Dear Reader resides in the Amant Bookstore and is an intimate event that is merely documented by a handful of drawings.
