Rabbit Catastrophe Press is based in Lexington, KY. We publish:
- Rabbit Catastrophe Review, a biannual print literary journal of experimental and traditional poetry, including the winners of our annual Real Good Poem Prize
- Chapbooks of poetry chosen from our Girls Like Us chapbook contest
- Various print ephemera, such as broadsides, bookmarks, stickers, buttons, etc.
Our Printing Process
Covers are handprinted. FFEPs, vellums and text blocks are scored and torn by hand to size and then hand folded into books by us.
Books are bound with a variety of perfect and sewn bindings. The design staff loves to experiment with new techniques and materials, so the look changes with each piece we publish. Because everything is made by hand, each copy of a book is unique.
We feel that visually and textually pleasing printed texts provide the physical space to contemplate literature and art slowly and thoroughly.
