Microcosm Publishing is an independent publisher and distributor based in Portland, OR. We distribute ideas through zines, books, pamphlets, stickers, buttons, patches, t-shirts, posters, films, and more! We focus on publishing zines and books in the hopes that it will add credibility to zine writers and their ethics. Our titles attempt to teach self empowerment and show hidden history while nurturing people's creative side. We began in 1996 with one person doing part time mailorder out of a bedroom.
