Thank you for visiting UPPERCASE. I'm happy that you're here.

I'm the publisher, editor, designer (and customer service, too!) of this one-woman operation.

I've been working really hard this year to publish beautiful books and magazines (four issues of UPPERCASE, Little U volume 2, Ceramics and a reprint of Botanica were all released in 2020! phew!) So I'm powering down now for the rest of the month to take it a bit easier.

I appreciate you taking the time to read and understand these details before entering the website.
 It will make your ordering experience easier and my workload a little lighter.

♥ Thank you!

Janine Vangool
