Ages ago, in a rented room in Malmö, Sweden, Niklas Press spent his long, lonely nights translating acclaimed American playwright David Mamet's classic introduction to film-making, On Directing Film, to Danish. Eventually, the publishing house that published the book morphed into Zlotnik's – An Uncompromising Artistic Empire. And in 2020, Zlotnik's published Niklas Press' debut as a poet. Now, in the spring of 2024, we are about to publish our most personal book yet. Join us if you dare!
TÆNDT – digte om sex, kærlighed og andre fusere, published July 2020, marked Niklas Press' debut as a poet. The book features a hand-mounted striking surface, and the cover is 450 g cream-colored cardboard (Gmund Cotton Natural Beige), which, over time, will acquire a patina just like leather. And which, as Miloš Zlotnik never fails to point out, is considerably more costly to produce than a hardcover book.
TÆNDT – digte om sex, kærlighed og andre fusere was designed through and through by Studio Tobias Røder.

Om at instruere film
In David Mamet’s provocative, annoying, and very funny book, you learn where to put the camera, what to say to the actors, and how to direct a movie about a man who wants to sell a pig.
On Directing Film is an unusual textbook. It’s written by a man who is a two-time Oscar nominated scriptwriter while simultaneously wrestling with the teething troubles of an up-and-coming indie director.
David Mamet has written scripts for box office hits such as The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Untouchables, and Wag the Dog.
The book is unlikely to be stocked anywhere — but you can order it everywhere. Just say: Forlaget Mina, ISBN 978-87-990591-1-9.
