I've been thinking a lot lately about what I want to do with False Start in the future. I have a few friends who are artists and one of them mentioned recently about wanting to publish a little book of her work. Ever since then I have thought potentially working with her to publish her book, but I don't know where to begin.
I am aware of Blurb and Lulu, but I am wondering what small press/zine publishers like Microcosm use to publish their books. I feel like Blurb and Lulu are more for self-publishing.
What kind of contracts/business deals would be necessary for publishing the work of others? Has anyone else ventured into this territory before?
