Box 3 Productions began with the serial mailings of The Typewriter Scroll in 1983. Since then, Box 3 has published essays on a range of topics including: art, life, noodles, smoke, pyramids, slush, and fried hard boiled eggs.
For over a dozen years, three spring mailings (SM, SSM, and TSM) were printed and mailed to subscribers on several continents. Box 3 has published two books and produced several audios (what would now be called podcasts), including Almanac across America, Atlas across America, and Sites No Sentences. Many past publications are still available (expect long waits).
In 2020, Box 3 shared The Covid Entries and June Pictures with a very limited audience. Since 2018, Box 3 has shared a newly released essay from Delayering every year on September 11. Those who signed up for the long simmering Video Picture Calendar receive a single Video Picture each year on New Year’s Day.
Box 3 Productions has many projects cooking. Feel free to leave your contact info,. and we will let you know when something is ready to share. For now, Hurricane Sandy True Darkness in Manhattan podcasts, Tourist Art, and a film called LA Drive By remain on the back burner.
