para·text is a print and online publishing experiment that aims to put space between poetic texts and their paratextual frameworks. para·text is printed roughly twice a year in an edition of 80, on Munken Lynx 120gsm by Hato Press. Corresponding paratextual information can be found on the website in an index to each printed edition, moving the threshold, and in turn its influence prior to reading, away from the poem.
