The idea of creating a press was born back in 2009. Patchouli Press was called The Teacup Symposium.

I created zines and visual art and travelled to zine and book fairs, occasionally tabling. I took my work from place to place, I was a nomad and the travelling press was my contribution to showing the world some of the best underground writers, poets, essayists and artists – with a little macabre twist, check out the Obscurum books and you will see what I mean.

The bottom line is that nothing has changed but the name.
