about dancing girl press & studio
An indie press and design studio based in Chicago, dancing girl press & studio creates a variety of open and limited edition books, art, and paper goods; as well as various ephemera inspired gifts and accessories.
Since 2004, the annual dgp chapbook series, has been devoted to publishing innovative writing by women authors in delectable handmade editions, as well as exploring the intersection of writing and the visual/book arts. We also publish wicked alice, an occasional litzine.
Our workspace is located on the 9th floor of downtown Chicago’s historic Fine Arts Building, a gorgeous structure with over a hundred year history of housing the arts. From time to time, we open our doors to the public for salons and open studios, as well as make book fair appearances and host readings throughout the Chicago area.
Proceeds from the shop go toward furthering our publishing efforts and myriad other projects. We also welcome donations to help us do what we do...
