Paper Placemats is a bound book of forty paper placemats, printed with work by thirty artists and ten writers. Each placemat can be ripped out and used. Contributors were asked to submit work having to do with “Place”. Conceived as a public art project, the placemats are periodically donated to restaurants across the U.S. with the help of volunteers in each state. Additional copies are sold domestically and internationally in bookstores.

Fiction edited by Paul Maliszewski.
