Eastside Editions began in Sonoma, California in 2000 as a papermaking studio inviting local artists to create monoprints on handmade paper. Over the years it evolved into a fine art print studio and publisher specializing in etchings printed on both handmade and mouldmade paper and featuring several well known Bay Area artists as well as recognized artists from Chicago and Rome. It closed in 2008 after having moved to San Francisco.
Simon J. Blattner established Eastside Editions, a fine arts print studio and publisher, in 2000. The studio, which ceased printing in 2008, specialized in etchings printed on both handmade and mouldmade paper. The purpose of the studio was to print the work of emerging and mid-career Bay Area artists. Blattner dedicated much of his time to the studio, where he also published several handmade books now in the rare book collections of Stanford University and St. Mary’s College as well as several major private book collections. Blattner made the paper used for these small edition print runs. He is the current owner of the Eastside Editions print archive.
