ARTBOOKS /

In addition to writing stories and essays, Trinie remains active in independent art + text publishing communities by making chapbooks, limited edition printed matter, and hybrid text/image projects. This broadens publishing range into cross-disciplinary fields, and often entails collaboration with graphic designers, typographers, musicians, and art galleries. Many of her artbooks have performative elements as well, culminating in art exhibition curating, film events, readings, concerts, and other activities to give the publication life after print.
