"I started making books after moving to Puerto Rico and finding myself in artistic and linguisitic crisis. I had worked in theater till then, with a group from Chicago, Theater Oobleck, that is very text based. In Puerto Rice, I found my Spanish manageable to eat and greet but not to spin a story.... And so I began to print books. I had for years printed posters and calendars, but books, and 'children's books' no less, offered me the chance to work with a minimum of words, that could be proofread, and could stand in for much more complex ideas." - Dave Buchen from Vamp & Tramp, Booksellers, LLC website.
