Small Press List from Codex 2012
I’ve scoured the internet for a list of small presses that produce artist books, and the best that I could find would be the list of exhibitors from the Codex Foundation’s 2011 Book Fair. The Codex Foundation holds a not-to-be-missed book fair every two years featuring some of the most talented book artists around the globe. In many cases, you get to meet the artists themselves, talk shop about their press, or buy their most recent book (should you be lucky enough to afford it!) I’ll write lots more on the role of small presses later, but for now here are some presses to explore.
Zweite Enzyklopädie von Tlön by Peter Malutzki and Ines von Ketelhodt
Some of my favorite small presses of the moment include Women’s Studio Workshop, Granary Books, Nexus Press (now extinct but you can still find many of their multiples in circulation), Aviary Press, Scantron Press, Coracle Press, Visual Studies Workshop and M.K. Publishers. Oh and THESE PEOPLE are amazing!
