What does "Nauset" mean?
Nauset (\ˈnȯsə̇t\ or "NAW-sit") The Nauset people were Native Americans who lived on Cape Cod, in Massachusetts. Beaches in Eastham and Orleans, as well as a regional school system on the lower Cape, are named after this tribe.
I spent my formative years on Cape Cod, a place that has always attracted artists, writers, and other creatives, who were irresistibly drawn to this uncommon spit of land jutting into the Atlantic. Growing up on the Cape, I connected with a group of creative friends and we collaborated on staging elaborate photo shoots with costumes and settings near our homes; which included the beach, the woods, an abandoned mansion, and other people's tennis courts off-season. This was during the late 1980s, well before Instagramming culture took off.
This particular synergy of time, place, and people had a unique impact upon me. When I left the Cape for Bard College, and after that, a twenty-year stint in Brooklyn, before making a mid-life turnaround to Wareham, Ma, known as the Gateway to the Cape, I found myself deeply missing the high level of collaboration with inventive minds, and sought to replicate that with Nauset Press.
Why Nauset Press?
Nauset Press was named to acknowledge and recognize how formative my time on Cape Cod was, and to inspire collaboration with artists and authors of superlative art and books that in their idiosyncrasies are thoughtfully intelligent works to share with the world.
