Lastest Distro Partner: erbacce
A heartfelt thanks to Andrew Taylor and the good folks at erbacce, who will help us in our mission to stuff MUSTs wherever we can get them stuffed. If you aren't familiar with erbacce, make it your business to set aside a few and go check them out. Andrew is a long time supporter of independent presses and he understands the desire to keep one's printed lovelies as autonomous and free-wheeling as possible. He gets the spirit of MUST, what we are about and why we cling to the DIY ethos. When you check out the website, you will find erbacce press to be kindred in this way, allies in nurturing communities of words. Even the word "erbacce", as they explain refers to an Italian word for "weeds", is something many of us can relate to as a metaphor. We know that MUST is a modest, gritty publication being pushed in neighborhoods that covet pristine lawns. But what about a pristine lawn feels natural? Weeds are an expression of nature asserting herself, her wild dominion. We're all just trying to survive without the corporate fertilizers.
