Container is a project dedicated to publishing language in novel forms. Often projects take the shape of things that are not what is normally classified as "book-like." Rarely, our objects look like traditional books. It depends.

Container's original run was from 2017 - 2019 under direction of Douglas Luman and Jenni B. Baker. This period of the press took a long rest after Jenni's passing in late 2020 due to complications from glioblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer.

In 2023, Container woke up.
