Rockford, Illinois – July 16, 2018 – Zombie Logic Press, which NPR called “Americas most dangerous small press,” has undoubtedly topped themselves by releasing the most unique American book of 2018 in Stephen Screiners’ The Koa Tree. The book, which Schreiner co-wrote with his granddaughter Ava Fitzsimmons, was lavishly illustrated by Renee Noelle Jacobs, and is a fable of the lessons learned by a tribe of native islanders on their quest to build a boat mighty enough to reach Tahiti. The story, which is a native Hawaiian legend, was written by Schreiner long before Disney’s imitation, Moana, was released.
The Koa Tree is the sixth book in the Rock River Literary Series, which seeks to publish and promote Rockford area writers to a local, regional, and national audience. The series is dedicated to longtime local publisher Frank Schier, who passed away in 2017.
Working in tandem with local design wizards at Mainfraim in Rockford, Illinois, the author was able to realize a dream of his to have this book made available with an indestructable tempered glass cover with an etching of a Koa tree. The book also has a mahogany back cover emblazened with a gold foil inset of a Koa tree. The entire book is leather bound. Copies of the book with the glass cover will be available as well as a paperback version. Previously Zombie Logic Press has worked with Mainfraim to release a book with a wooden cover, and has plans to experiment with even more unique formats in the near future. Those books are assembled entirely here in Rockford.
In tandem with Mainfraim, Zombie Logic Press is now able to offer the most unique book designs to interested clients. If you can dream it, we can do it. And we have.
