In the Year of the Earth Pig 2019,

FORTUNE formed as a Philadelphia-based publication project conceived by Andrienne Palchick, Heidi Ratanavanich, and Connie Yu; and assembled by and for queer Asian publics. Each of 13 monthly issues joined letterpress and risograph printing, featured multiple contributors, and was released through community gatherings of varied scale.

In the Year of the Metal Ox 2021,

FORTUNE continues to think of printing and self-publishing as a practice of learning, gathering, remembering, and making multiple. As such, FORTUNE will always be a public project, tended to collectively.

This year also marks our move to operate as a more serviceable small press, responsive to local QTBIPOC print needs. Ready for work, as Many Folds Press.
