pataphor press was founded a couple years ago to publish this pataphilosophical children's book, "Nietzsche in Shapes & colors."  The book, a modern classic, is in its second edition.

We also offer handmade prints, candles and other kinds of ephemera.  I most certainly have a couple good t-shirt ideas.

If you are here, you are a friend. So let me know if you have questions or requests

your friend,

pataphor press

we encourage you to visit your favorite local retailer.  You can find Nietzsche in shapes & colors at most of chicago's finest bookstores, such as this one.

Our friends at lion's tooth in milwaukee also sell high quality content and subscription packages to help keep you up to date on the ever-changing book and zine industry.

And what good is your book if it's not on sale in New York City, Baby?  Find Nietzsche in the Neue Galery.
