Birdcage Bottom Books was founded by J.T. Yost in 2008 with the help of a Xeric Grant. We are both a publishing company and a distro representing over 100 self-publishing artists and small-presses. Our focus is on handmade comics, prints and apparel, often limited editions using customized printing techniques like risograph and screenprinting. Our goal is to help independent artists get their work into more hands. Our publications have been nominated for and/or won multiple awards including the Eisners, Ignatz, Charly Eiselt, DiNKY and Japan Media Arts awards!
