David Press, Language Liberation Front: "Petra Press and I have self-published a collaborative collection of 'zines. Each publishes one of my micro-novels with Petra's digital designs overprinting the text. The titles of this 'zine collection are The Coroner's Report on Captain Video, Miriam Awakes, In the Dominican with Satchel Paige, Scar Tissue, and postcards from the hecatomb, [Consequences of the Total Lunar Eclipse, West End Blues, and Narrow Escapes]."

David Press, smashwords: "As a mild mannered reporter, David Press lives in Milwaukee where he has taught, run an educational publishing company, sold battery-operated Santa Clauses, and authored six young-adult nonfiction books on abolitionists, music, and sports. … Press lives with his wife, Petra, an art teacher, print maker, and book artist whose works are exhibited nationally. They sometimes collaborate on unique word/design projects."

Petra Press as well as being a book artist is also a published author of children's books and young adult literature.
