Project Description

(k)NOT CAUGHT is the second issue of our merry collective, Plots by Clots. In this issue we endeavor to show you the bounds of our imaginations. We wonder what it would be like to get away--with anything. We enact struggles on multiple scales, and bask in that liminal space between yes and no. The boundaries of right and wrong have proven to be fast and loose, and matters of salvation seized within the muscles of the heart. We hope to snare you with these stories and let you go again, delighted.

Plots by Clots is a creative collective consisting of working producers, writers, designers, filmmakers, artists, engineers, animators, and special human beings based in Los Angeles, CA. We meet once a week on Thursday nights for storytelling and snacks. The core of our group are alumni of the Type&Authorship class at Art Center College of Design (our zine was featured here three years ago!), and is ever expanding and open to those looking for a creative escape from daily life and willing contribute to our snack pile.

Production Lesson(s)

CreateSpace is an Amazon company that supplies free tools to help self-publish and distribute books. The interface was helpful and easy to use, and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality + accuracy of printing when I received our proof. I had read reviews that color was printing too dark, but the grays and light greens held up well and the photographs only slightly flattened. The only paper choices are between matte and glossy. We went with a matte cover, which ended up being more of a soft touch finish, and matte interior.

My experience with CreateSpace was pretty positive, but am also looking for other print-on-demand companies that might have a faster turnaround and is friendlier towards independent booksellers.”
