As an author, I set up Double-Negative Publishing house with authors in mind. Writers spend years of their life doing research and writing in the creation of their literary works. Therefore, the income you receive through Double-Negative is not based on penny-royalties. You receive the majority of income for your written works. The costs of printing are handled separately, and the publishing house receives only a small commission, similarly to commission for artists who exhibit through Hyperion Gallery.
About the name: I named my publishing house double-negative, for three reasons. The first meaning of the name is from my early work as a black & white photographer, because I loved to create multiple exposures and images by printing two negatives together in the enlarger to create new compositions. The second meaning comes from mathematics, in which two negatives can equal a positive. The third meaning is symbolic, and is embodied in the logo, in which two negatives, which also makes an equals sign, can be turned on a 90-degree angle to become a plus sign, visually representing the meaning of positivity.
