Do you like artist books and zines?
Check out our Indidgogo campaign for PULP ATLAS, a series of Artist-Book and Zine exhibitions across the US, UK, and Canada!
PULP ATLAS is a series of artist book exhibitions featuring the work of 12 artists experimenting with the book form. Each artist is producing an edition of 12 artist books or zines, allowing for 12 exhibitions to happen in different cities during the Fall of 2014. Each contributing artist is responsible for hosting an exhibition in their city.
PULP ATLAS explores the contemporary book form as well as the cultural borders surrounding alternative exhibition spaces. Artist books and zines occupy a unique territory: inherently legible even while experimental, they are precious yet consumable, able to be viewed in public but read as an incredibly personal experience. PULP ATLAS aims to explore the dynamics of the book form in an alternative viewing space.
Participating libraries, bookstores, and other venues in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Chicago, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia as well as Toronto, Canada, Ipswich, England and Edinburgh, Scotland will be announced as dates are secured.

In order to make these exhibitions happen and to produce our books we need your help!
By contributing to this campaign you’ll be helping 12 individual artists create new artworks that will be seen by people all around the US, UK, and Canada (and the interwebs!)! This is an important time to be crafting books by hand and to be putting them out into the public. You are helping us expand a dialogue around books and artist-books and exhibiting physical objects in public settings. Big issues! Big ideas! And you only need to make a small contribution to make a big difference!
Our goal is to raise $400 per artist. This money will help offset production costs for each artist’s book. Your contributions will help each of us buy paper, ink, and/or pay for professional printing of the pages of these books. Your contribution will also help us promote and organize each of the 12 upcoming exhibitions. Making books by hand requires some elbow grease and getting a public exhibition together requires some financial grease.
