Best Indie Publisher 

Rotland Press; rotlandpress.com

In 19th century England, the top form of adolescent working-class entertainment was the “penny dreadful.” Named for their cheap price and lurid subject matter, they planted the seeds for zines, tabloids and pretty much the rest of alternative publishing. Today, artist Ryan Standfest curates a collection of books made in that same spirit as part of his Detroit-based Rotland Press — examples include an illustrated Appalachian murder ballad, or the decidedly local flair of Detroit-based Stephen Schudlich’s gleeful lampoon of the citizens of Grosse Pointe.
