My name is Paul Werner. I’m an artist and a cultural critic. In 1973 I founded the Orange Press while a member of an anarchist print shop called Come! Unity Press. The idea was, and still is, to do as much as possible on my own: writing, printing, distributing; also, to offer free exchange so far as is possible. Nothing’s changed. In 1999 I started WOID. A journal of visual language, along the same principles. I hold a PhD in Art History from CUNY (Topic: Jacques Louis David and the French Revolution). You can find more about me here:

And a lot more of my writing and projects here:
