In the near future I’d like to start a micro/hobby-publishing biz. I’d like to find some under-appreciated or forgotten works in the public domain and do ‘em up proper. None of this facsimile crap, none of this cheapo reprinting/POD that many companies are doing these days. I aim to design layouts, get high quality scans of the original book illustrations, and hand bind the books. In small quantities.
I have two possible names in mind for my wee company: MARKHOR, for the Middle Eastern wild goat, or ANAMNESIS, the platonic concept that all knowledge is simply remembered from past lives.
ANAMNESIS has a more solid grounding, but it doesn’t conjure the visuals like MARKHOR. The silhouette in the logo mock-up is Jane Austen, but could potentially be anybody.
