The Papercuts Library is an offering of succinctly crafted guides dedicated to the slow death of ignorance.

With purposeful perspective and actionable strategies for individuals who want to make a difference, the Papercuts Library aims to save ourselves from ourselves in clear, easy to consume, and manageable doses.

The Papercuts Library is ready to join your library!

Conceived while vacuuming in August 2019 and launched in September 2020, the Papercuts Library was founded by writer and conceptual artist Joey Sellers as an attempt to counter the rise of indignant stupidity in both traditional and social media with a collection of polemics, pitches, and prescriptions for a more thoughtful and civilized America.

Printed and produced in-house since launch, starting with Papercuts Library #8 we will be working with a very exciting new print partner that will be announced soon!

For now though, Joey prints, folds, and staples every book that goes out the door, in addition to writing, designing, and shipping them too!

The first five Papercuts

From the beginning the idea was to do something different all around, including with distribution, and so the only place you can buy the Papercuts Library is right here on our website and at select independent retailers. These books are in print for a reason, as they are not on Amazon for a reason as well.
