Reading Frenzy is a small, specialty bookshop in Portland, Oregon, devoted to independent media, small press and self-published titles. These prints are Nos. 1, 2 and 3 in an ongoing series celebrating our favorite pastime and some of our favorite artists, the sales of which support our mission! Print no. 4 (not pictured) is by Kate Bingaman-Burt and will come out this summer!

Each print is limited to an edition of 250 and exclusively available through Reading Frenzy! Celebrate reading and support Reading Frenzy!
