misprint-it is a Rotterdam-based platform meant to promote several gatherings around artists’ books, self-publishing, performance and sound. Since 2012 that misprint-it has been organising workshops on artists’ books and sound. The main idea behind these workshops was and still is, to encourage participants to develop their own concepts departing from the most varied and unconventional source materials. Besides its educational programme, misprint-it started in 2015 editing and publishing its own books whose subject revolves around performance, sound and language and where the (hand)production of the books in itself, is a central element. misprint-it is an initiative by Patrícia Pinheiro de Sousa.
