Echo Park Books consists of Andrew Pogany (Echo Park resident, self-proclaimed “cultural instigator” and former Flaunt Magazine Editor-in-Chief) and Michael Stock (writer, DJ, and part-time professor). “For now, Echo Park Books will focus on publishing limited-edition books, chapbooks, and fanzines,” says Andrew, “But the plan is for it to evolve into just one of several imprints offering a variety of literary and arts services to an intimate community of creative peers.”

Art Time Punks books is a limited edition (only 250 books will be published), is black and white, soft cover perfectbound, 98 pages, and dimensions are 8 x 8 inches. All books come wrapped in Kraft Butcher paper.
