PUBLICATION STUDIO’s Fellow Travelers series extends the
pioneering work of Paris-based Olympia Press’s Traveller’s Companion series of the 1950s and ‘60s, which published work that had been banned or censored through moralistic prohibitions. Our series presents great new work that has been effectively “censored” by the market. In our day, the market is the definitive censor. The Fellow Travelers series proudly presents great work that the market has not endorsed, but that we believe in. 'From Sleepwalking to Sleepwalking' will be released by Publication Studio London on 4th April, Marguerite Duras’ birthday.
