Perfectly Acceptable Press
Perfectly Acceptable Press publishes short-run narrative artist books with an emphasis on synergy between content, craft, and form. Our aim is to create an object that pushes the boundaries of a zine without sacrificing accessibility. We produce all of our books in-house with Risograph duplicators.
Jack Reese lives in Brooklyn, NY. He performs occasionally with his band VD. He takes infrequent commissions to design and sew unique garments. Currently, he is working on a Gesamtkunstwerk role playing simulation of the United Nations.
Roya Haroun wrote and drew Protean Power. She is an interdisciplinary artist, voyeur and recent gym member. Currently, she has a host of creatures living in the window of Desert Island Comics, Brooklyn. Her band Vas Deferens (with art monster Jack Reese) performs with some regularity in the NY area.
Sarah Lammer is an artist and educator and the author of Change in the Observer. She uses a range of media, often airbrush, cut paper, and animation, to draw the outlines of objects and the spaces between people. Sarah lives in Brooklyn, NY where she may also co-run a secret restaurant.
Nick Norman is an interdisciplinary artist living in Philadelphia. He’d like you to please consider banking with your local credit union instead of a certain unnamed multinational banking institution with a checkered past, and fairly unsavory present.
