About

Damask is an independent press located in Brooklyn and Chicago. We produce hand-made chapbooks and broadsides in small batches. We favor a spare design aesthetic and experimental verse. We have published (or will publish) titles by Alix Anne Shaw, Russell Jaffe, Cean Gamalinda, and other poets.   

Damask was founded and is staffed by Toby Altman and Liana Katz, both avid readers and writers with a shared love of the city of Damascus.  Allegra Fisher designed our logo.
