Mindmade Books (née Seeing Eye Books, 1997–2017) was a small press publishing chapbooks of modern and contemporary poetry. Among the more than eighty titles that appeared under its imprint are works by internationally renowned poets, several “first collections,” and occasional reprints of little-known or long-out-of-print texts.

While there was no single editorial vision, many Mindmade Books explored the virtuality of the short lyric; the asemantic sign as a medium for poetry; and/or self-reflexivity, seriality, and constraint as compositional strategies. They also tended to reflect an interest in coherent, chapbook-length works as opposed to groups of otherwise unrelated poems.
