Who are you and what do you do?
We are an independent publisher based in Portland and we collaborate with artists to create illustrated books and paper goods. Everything we make is printed in the USA using 100% recycled paper and vegetable-based inks. www.littleotsu.com
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
We just wrapped up our first children’s book! It’s called “Atop a Hill in Frostville” by the amazing UK artist Daniel Frost and we’re excited to share it at UCU!
How did you get started in your business?
We started as a retail store in San Francisco in 2002 and began working with artists on art shows and a line of store exclusive tees. This blossomed into publishing paper goods and eventually books. It’s been a fun journey of learning as we go.
Is this a full-time business for you?
Luckily it is!
Where do you see your business in 3 years?
We’d like to keep publishing great stuff and hope to have a retail headquarters in Portland.
