The Donut Shop collaborates with local artists to publish small edition zines and artists books. Hoping to support experimental artist publishing, we have developed a business model where the selling of our donut prints is the means for funding our artist publishing projects.
By using online exhibition and distribution we create an avenue for all kinds of makers to push their practice through book production.
Currently, we have two projects underway with both, Aimee Beaubien and Justin Schmitz. Stay tuned for more information.

The TIME LIFE Series were sourced from at set of 12 books originally published in 1967 by the TIME-LIFE Library. Each original book measured 8.5"x11". Titles include: The Frontier States, The Plains States, The U.S. Overseas, The District of Columbia, The Mountain States, The South Central States, The Border States, The Gateway States, The Pacific States, The Frontier States, New England, and, The Heartland.
Created by cutting each original book into smaller sets, four books were then bound individually.
Note: Each book will be slightly different depending on the location before the cutting occurred. Black and white and color photos and illustrations serendipitously flow throughout.
