Singing Saw Press is a fine arts and poetry publisher dedicated to collaborations between visual artists and writers. Our publications aim to foster interdisciplinary dialogue both contributor-to-contributor and in a more formal way, between image and text. From 2013 to 2019, Singing Saw Press published Parallax, an annual folio of broadsides, that has been collected by institutions including The Center for Book Arts, The Arizona Poetry Center, University of Southern California, and Bowdoin College. In 2022, Singing Saw Press released Redolent, a limited-edition art book featuring images by Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez and poems by Farid Matuk. The founding editors of Singing Saw Press are Norah Maki and Allyson Paty.
Norah Maki is a printmaker and book artist based in Kingston, New York. Her work uses a variety of narrative formats and repetitive mark making to explore present and future worlds. Her work has been exhibited in the US and internationally and is held in the collections of the Center for Book Arts in New York City, SUNY Buffalo, the Zurich James Joyce Foundation, and numerous private collections.
Allyson Paty is a writer based in Brooklyn, New York. The author of three chapbooks, most recently, Five O'Clock on the Shore (above/ground press, 2019), her poetry has been published in journals including BOMB, Boston Review, Denver Quarterly, Tin House, The Yale Review, and elsewhere. She has a longtime trash documentation project, which she's written about for The Baffler.
