Fifth Planet Press is an arts publishing group quietly run by Unisa Asokan and Tania Elizov (1968 -2010) for over the past twenty years. Fifth Planet is an independent publisher that supports the art outlets of musicians. Almost all the authors, artists, illustrators, and designers are artists that are musicians, too.. Over the years, the press has evolved from poetry, to fiction, literary annuals, a multi-media novel, an e-book, an ongoing book arts experiment, and an inaugural collection of illustrated absurdities by Jenu Castillo.We don't take this, or much of anything too seriously, paradoxically. Fifth Planet produces new meida and art objects, but mostly literature and books for the beauty and perfection of it all.
