KFB PRESS

With a passion for simple design and good work, knife | fork | book has been publishing poetry chapbooks since 2017. “Our aim,” says KFB’s publisher Kirby, “is to serve the book,” tending to the beauty of the book in hand. In 2019, KFB launched a second imprint, What Queer Reading [wQr], edited by Fan Wu, with a directive to publish queer/BIPOC poets. Also in 2019, KFB launched a NOT YOUR BEST series, the premiere issue edited by Eric Schmaltz. We have since branched out into broadsides, ephemera, and full-length collections.
