Packet is published every other week in Brooklyn, NY. Issues are printed with a Risograph RZ390u, occasionally supplemented with inkjet and laserjet sheets. A cover 'residency' is given to an individual seasonally, spanning six issues. After completion, each set of six is available as a compendium: staples are removed from the original issues then pages wire-bound into volumes.
Packet is a collective and contribution-based publication with focus on process and experimentation in work, openly embracing stupidity and irreverence. Packet is a holding shape for immediacy and the 'par-baked.'
