Washington Street Press (New York)
Xanadu Press (New York)

are imprints of eMediaLoft.org
and, as such, represent unexpected confluences of images and texts, often created in collaboration.

Washington Street Press is non-imagebased.
Xanadu Press produces books in which pictures and texts are imaginative, and visually linked.

Both are editied by media and performance artist and writer, Barbara Rosenthal, and several are collaborations. Her monthly column of philosophy about the interconnection of art and artist, A Crack in the Sidewalk, appears in Ragazine, and her bookworks are in the collections of The Whitney, MoMA, Tate, Berlin Kunstbibliotek, et al. Our authors conduct their readers toward ideal visions via real experience along paths beaconed by unusual ideas or artifacts or media. They see and present the world in truly unique, incisive ways. No submissions are accepted; publication is by invitation only.

Rosenthal discussed the 38-year process of her novel in relationship to the other 70 image/text/performance/media works by her that Printed Matter offers, and what she means by "Media Poetry." She also spoke about how her art and literary work in overlapping media fits together. All four artist/writers, as well as video artists such as Coleen Fitzgibbon and other mediated thinkers were present to talk about the works they produced or screened at eMediaLoft.org during the past year.
