About Bored Wolves

Bored Wolves is a micro-press run by Stefan Lorenzutti and Joanna Osiewicz-Lorenzutti out of a cabin in the Polish highlands. We are dedicated to publishing poetry books, artist’s books, and zines (many of our books blend and overlap these categories) in carefully crafted but always affordable editions. Here’s a list of everything we’ve published in chronological order.

Stefan began Bored Wolves, in 2010/11, in collaboration with Joanna and working with graphic designer Pilar Rojo, as a book-at-a-time imprint for publishing his poems in a way that felt true to himself. Every step of the way, his Pole Star has been the tactile ethos of the Mimeo Revolution, a limitless source of inspiration.

In September 2020, Bored Wolves pivoted toward publishing other poets and artists, beginning with Sevinç Çalhanoğlu’s zine of hand-drawn marker graphs, My Life in Curves Recently.

With ten books slated for publication, 2021 is the year Bored Wolves becomes quantitatively less micro. Qualitatively, we will continue to immerse ourselves in each project with the same concentration, dedication, and affection as in years past when we were publishing that one single book at a time.

All Bored Wolves books are printed offset in Poland on fibrous Arctic Munken Paper. Bindings are sewn & glued to facilitate cracking of spines, or Singer-sewn in the case of our 16-page zines.

While we are focused on printing the best darn book we can without ever compromising on paper, binding, etc., a central plank of our publishing philosophy is that our books should always be affordable.

And as the question often comes up, know that the wolves aren’t actually bored at all. They were kind of bored a decade ago, but not anymore, because they started making books.
