From the Democratisation of Film-making to the Democratisation of Book printing

In the 21st Century, economical printing of small numbers of books brings to life self-publishing, boutique publishing, market-testing publishing and alternative publishing in a way not unlike what digital video has done for film-making. Books become a natural extension of creative media - and that includes blurring the lines between books and film.

IAFilm books, like our movies, come from our interests in fantastic, fantasy and sci-fi with underlying subversive streaks of social comment and satire.
