July and August books are a pair.  Worlds and Antiworlds.  

40 pages.  8 copies of each.  13.25 inches tall x 8 inches wide.  Printed and hand bound in my garage-studio in Los Angeles, CA. Much of the brain and indesign work done between LA and Paris.  

Color and space and language and magic.  And annihilation.  

These books will be traveling the globe as part of the PULP ATLAS exhibition series this Fall!

Very happy to have a couple of my books living in the MIF Art Book Library in Fukushima!

Check out their website to see some of the other great artists and publishers that are in the collection.

PULP ATLAS INDIEGOGO!

To support this series of artist book and zine exhibitions, we are raising money through Indiegogo - check out our page!  

When you donate to PULP ATLAS, you are supporting the production of new work by 12 artists focusing on the book form as well as a series of exhibitions across the US, UK, and Canada.  

Plus?  When you donate you can claim one of several amazing perks/rewards including a Set of 3 Queer Scout Badges (Stitch on your queer scout pride! Metallic thread, bright colors!)  or a Queer Zoology Hanky (Hand-printed, heat set, and ready to be broken in!) by Mary Tremonte!

Mary (Mack) Tremonte is an artist-educator-DJ currently living in Toronto, ON. Her vibrant silkscreen prints explore queer animal sexualities, amplified possibilities, and signifiers. As a DJ and party organizer she strives to create temporary safe spaces for expression, as well as to raise funds and awareness for grassroots causes. She is consumed with printmaking, totally teens, collaboration, communication and the politics of social space, particularly the danceparty.

/////////

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.  

Check out the blog for continuous updates here (http://pulpatlas.tumblr.com)!

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.   

woot!

Image includes two of my favorite things: my family and outer space.  Pictured, from left to right and starting at the top, Nikos, Anna, Basilis, Lambro, Theofilos, and Spiro during a family trip back to the village of Granitsa way back when.  All my dad’s siblings except Themis (next time, Themis, I promise you’ll be in).  So excited to have been able to put this up with the help of a my cousins Petros and George.  

My dad was initially confused.  But I think he likes it now.
