Mastication Publications (est. 1991) is a line of special creative projects independently produced, sold and/or distributed by Michael and Renate Arnzen. Our slogan, “Unusual Ideas to Chew On,” derives from our first book published together — called Chew — and our imprint is an allusion to an oft-quoted line from Sir Francis Bacon. We also like to think that our quirky products are a kind of monstrous offspring, with teeth.
This site is growing, but our output is humble so far. Please see our full catalog for a taste of what to expect from us, and subscribe to our free mailing list so you’ll learn first about our latest, strangest, creations and releases.
And THANK YOU for looking into what we have to offer! — Mike Arnzen
