E//O

E//O by Louis Jargow, Suzahn Ebrahimian & Lauren Moran

E//O is a contemporary poetic retelling of the Eurydice and Orpheus myth — a memory of a memory of a memory. Following the classical story of love, death, and a trip to the beyond to rescue love, E//O takes on Eurydice's underexamined perspective. What motivates her to leave the world of the living and keeps her in Hades? E//O traces our own lives as we struggle to find meaning and love in a cold dark world.

The Social Life of Artistic Property

The Social Life of Artistic Property by Pablo Helguera, Michael Mandiberg, William Powhida, Amy Whitaker, and Caroline Woolard

What happens when twelve artists gather to discuss the relationship between art and property? In twenty meetings over two and a half years, the core group of Pablo Helguera, Michael Mandiberg, Amy Whitaker and Caroline Woolard birthed this provocative volume. The group produced three pieces of writing about experiments in group living and three proposals for the future of artistic property, including initiatives that reimagine studio space, living space, and artwork. The group is grateful for the contributions to this conversation by many others, some of which are published elsewhere. Bound together, here is a record of the group's research and an invitation to consider the forgotten histories and plausible futures of the social life of artistic property.

Brand New Moon

Brand New Moon by Douglas W. Milliken

Ritualized basketball mishaps, complicated sex-acts, and improvised means of getting high define the lives of the young men in Douglas W. Milliken's Brand New Moon. Set in the remote farmlands of northern Maine and told through the boisterously comic voice of Coleman, these three stories—much in the spirit of Jerry Moriarty's Jack Survives—document the hooligans' headlong drift through tragedy without a self-preserving flinch or wince, gleefully oblivious and giddy in the face of personal loss, maybe only fleetingly suspecting how deep their abounding trouble might run.

A Diary of Mysterious Difficulties

A Diary of Mysterious Difficulties by Laura Raicovich

A Diary of Mysterious Difficulties was borne out of spam received over a period of several months. These emails circumvented spam filters by including odd texts beneath image-based ads for Viagra, Cialis and penis enlargement. As the same proper names continually surfaced, it seemed likely that these excerpts were taken from a longer text. In fact, they were lifted from Charles Dickens's David Copperfield. These bits of text, once a Dickens novel, are reworked, strung together, and augmented to create a spy-story/melodramatic romance novel.

Every Second One Hundred Bolts of Lightning Strike the Earth

Every Second One Hundred Bolts of Lightning Strike the Earth by James Hoff

A book that quietly measures its own reading experience through the time based statistics it lists, or rather all the things that happen while one reads “Every Second One Hundred Bolts of Lightning Strike the Earth”. The invocation of time in statistics is often meant to convey the urgency of a political or social cause, or at other times stun the reader with the temporal scale of a natural occurrence. Combined in this volume, the sequential incidents happening every second form a narrative that loops back from rhetoric to the everyday. This book was turned to the reading speed of Børre Sæthre.

James Hoff is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. His work encompasses sound, painting, writing, performance, and publishing. He is the co-founder of Primary Information (with Miriam Katzeff), a non-profit arts organization devoted to publishing artists' books and art-historical documents. He has lectured throughout Europe and the United States at venues such as the MCA (Denver, CO), the Pompidou (Paris, France), the Sorbonne (Paris, France), Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (Nova Scotia, Canada), and the National Academy of Art (Oslo, Norway).

Improvising Freely: the ABCs of an Experience

Improvising Freely: the ABCs of an Experience by Lê Quan Ninh

Improvising Freely, written by classically trained French improviser Lê Quan Ninh, is a translation from French into English by the Canadian philosopher and poet Karen Houle. This PS Guelph edition contains new material not found in either of the previous two French editions. Containing nearly 80 short, lyrical reflections on all manner of experiences—psychological, material, political, social—this book emerges from Lê Quan's lifelong vocation as a cutting-edge improvisational sound artist. 


Lê Quan chose the organizational form of an "Abécédaire" (or what in English is called "An ABC of..") because it permitted him to construct a level of non-linearity in the subject matter, appropriately reflecting the nature of the work of making improvised music. As he writes, the form of the ABC arbitrarily set us up lovely echoes for the reader between ideas that happen to find themselves placed next to one another, like books on a shelf catalogued by colour, or size. Delightfully, the shift from French to English scrambled even that system ("pédagogie" is now found under E for "education", followed by "freedom" which used to be found under L for "liberté."). All the way from "abandon" to "zero", Improvising Freely digs poetically deeply into the experiences of improvisation.

To Sleep as Animals

To Sleep as Animals by Douglas W. Milliken

A shadowy organization dispatches narcoleptic photographer Ben Nigra west to conduct an obscure research assignment. There, in the streets and casinos of Reno and the abandoned ghost towns of the surrounding Nevada Desert, reality begins to blur. Ben finds illicit romance with his cousin El and friendship with a host of prostitutes and homeless men while trying to keep his tenuous hold on waking consciousness. A botched errand, haunting childhood memories, relentless bodily hazard and an arcane African mask ritual take shape in Douglas W. Milliken's sensuous prose. To Sleep as Animals is an existential detective novel charting one man's slow belly-crawl from obsessive searching into near oblivion.

How to Listen to and Understand Fake Music

How to Listen to and Understand Fake Music by Willy Smart

In 2013, Willy Smart listened to 45-minute music history lectures titled How to Listen to and Understand Great Music (by Robert Greenberg) on his headphones while at work. In the following mornings, Smart paraphrased each lecture by memory into a Google Voice voicemail before transcribing them into the collection presented here in How to Listen to and Understand Fake Music


Each of these lectures have been filtered through several executions that are too personal to be called a Oulipo procedure, but results in revealing a poetics of specific processes and restraints. It is representative of a sudden, immediate response, tendered down by human memory and emotion, and a willingness to allow language to become new.

The Wolves

The Wolves by Jason R Jimenez

The Wolves, Jason R Jimenez's debut novel, is the story of two men's obsession and possession of two women, separated by over 600 years of history. In San Francisco, an unnamed narrator comes under the spell of a mysterious and wildly violent young woman named Wolf. The two rampage through the city on a delirious journey, fueled by drugs and fasting, finally crashing and succumbing to the narrator's destructive fantasies. In medieval Italy, an elderly priest, Raymond of Capua, is sent to Siena by the Pope, where he quickly develops a fascination with the future Saint Catherine of Siena. Catherine defies Raymond's, the Pope's, and her city's path to the Lord, and in so doing, captivates Raymond to the point that he can only reach the Lord through Catherine's own spiritual power. The two tales mirror one another in their violence and sexual obsession. There is no escape from the wolves.

16 Sculptures

16 Sculptures by Travis Jeppesen

16 Sculptures is a book of Travis Jeppesen's writings for the Whitney Biennial 2014. In his installation 16 Sculptures, visitors—sitting while blindfolded—listen to recordings of Jeppesen reading his object-oriented re-creations of sculptures. Depriving us of our usual faculties for experiencing works of art—sight and visual-spatial reasoning—Jeppesen's texts instead stage an encounter with objects through language that nonetheless retains the texture of embodied, physical experience, an imaginative realm in which he attempts to summon the autonomous essences and interior lives of objects themselves.

Get Back Stay Back

Get Back Stay Back by Joseph Conway

Maine-based writer Joseph Conway sets out in search of the enduring dream of a better, simpler life in a place beyond the hustle and bustle of modern life. Tracing the evolution of the back-to-the-land movement from the late 1960s to today, he finds a new generation of farmers and homesteaders picking up where their parents left off.

The stories of 13 families in the pastures and backwoods of Maine play out in two acts—parents dropping out of society and into extreme self-sufficiency and experimentation, and their kids who today are leading the charge to see what sustainability, local food and organic agriculture can do for the communities into which they were born.

The Hylaeus Project

The Hylaeus Project by Lisa Schonberg with illustrations by Aidan Koch

Aidan Koch and Lisa Schonberg spent a month in Hawaii carrying out a multimedia documentation of the native Hylaeus bees at over 20 field sites on Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island. Hylaeus habitat is increasingly rare, and the 60-something known species have all suffered precipitous declines; several species have been petitioned to be listed as endangered. 


This book includes writing from both Koch and Schonberg, interviews with naturalists, and Koch's watercolors and drawings. Schonberg also composed new pieces of music based on the soundscapes and character of the field sites they visited.

These poems were hand-edited and those edits appear in facsimile transcription, a transparent erasure of things past. His poems have been published in American Letters & Commentary, Colorado Review, New American Writing and many others.

Prick Queasy

Prick Queasy by Ronald Palmer

Prick Queasy, Ronald Palmer's debut novel, is the story of Russ Wade, a man tormented by the ghost of Hart Crane and his own vigilante crusade of killing closeted gay men. Poetic, haunting and downright raunchy, Prick Queasy moves between the different facets of Russ Wade's life and psyche, not so much explaining his behaviors, but opening up the gaping chasm that torments our protagonist. We do not sympathize with Wade but we end up as a part of him, loving him and feeling everything he feels. It is a rare talent who can create such a world to fall into, happily and horrifically. 


"Russ Wade is Batman, Alice and Hannibal. His story begins in the frothy pink halo of a genre romp and moves forward by continually opening different registers, a surfeit of haunting, killing, fucking, existential riffing, thrilling frantic raving, profound suffering, and galactic ticking—and that is so gay! Prick Queasy must be the pinkest book in the world—is the novel itself a drastic throbbing prick? Ronald Palmer bursts through the traps of consciousness like an action hero in 300-D, and by that I mean he is a visionary." -Robert Glück

Lace Sick Bag

Lace Sick Bag by Joon Oluchi Lee

With Lace Sick Bag, Joon Lee offers thirteen hard, delicate and sweet stories for you to wear close to your skin. Borne from a desire to embody femininity, these are stories that sound and feel like women. They traverse opposite coasts of bodily existence, as men turn into women, women turn into men, children become mothers, mothers become children. (And geographic coasts as well: New York and San Francisco turn into each other.) They burrow deep into the psyche and then spring out to teach how to glimmeringly show your insides on the outside.

Pop Art Poem (with Advertising)

Pop Art Poem (with Advertising) by Jesse Harris

POP ART POEM (with Advertising) is a chapbook by Toronto artist and University of Guelph graduate Jesse Harris. Originally published in issue three of Ideyeahs magazine, the book repurposes the WHAAM!s and CRASHes of pop art as poetry. Jesse Harris works in a variety of media such as sculpture, printmaking, vinyl-cutting, bookmaking, and animated GIFs (like this one here! or this other one here), and his work often incorporates text creations, such as his buttons and pins (sporting slogans like "Think or Thwim"). His work references punk, pop art, and conceptual art to recontextualize and reevaluate D.I.Y. aesthetics, often depicting the transformation of radical messages into collectible kitsch.

Hang On To Your Hot Lights

Hang On To Your Hot Lights by Nick Paparone Rory Parks

Hang On To Your Hot Lights is a collaboration between Nick Paparone and Rory Parks. "the title for the collaboration: "CONVICTION: EXPANDED AND REBRANDED" is the entry point for this dynamic, which would in some ways model itself on archetypal comedic duos like Laurel and Hardy, or Abbott and Costello. Certain installation works planned for the show would actively play out these comedic forms or action and reaction. For instance a video whose audio is an elaborate "Hypnosis Script" and whose visual is its counterpoint rebranding.

Other themes may include the double meaning of conviction, art-for-art's sake as as redefined by every conceivable future genesis and corresponding indictment for its inevitably detected espousal of autonomous value, a defense of advertising's ideological affect if only to reground the basis of its indictment.

Self Help

Self Help by Michael Welsh

SELF HELP by Michael Welsh represents the intersection of three discreet interests of the artist: abstraction in painting; self-help advice authored by Oprah Winfrey; and magic alchemy. For this publication, Welsh has appropriated advertisements, photo spreads and editorials from O Magazine, a periodical produced by Winfrey, and applied layers of paint to translate these popular media pieces into the language of abstract painting. Accompanying the images are original poems by Welsh—part manifesto, part existential crisis—that use appropriated text from Modern Alchemy and Occult Psychology by D. Lawrence Meredith and inspirational, life-affirming quotes from Oprah Winfrey


This is the second title to be co-published by Social Malpractice Publishing and Publication Studio.

A litany of potential titles, a browsing of possible subjects, the books stutters to life with a slew of title pages. Being facile, being curious, it takes this continuing search for content as its subject. Part catalog of the artist's recent work and part visual essay, Felton's new book explores how we manage to filter out all the rest and find what we were looking for.

A Guide to the North American Obeast

A Guide to the North American Obeast by Rachel Herrick

This two-book set explores artist Rachel Herrick's cuttingly humorous obeast project from the inside out.

Obeast: A Natural & Unnatural History, the first book in the set, is a collection of (fictional) scholarly articles about the biology, history, and conservation of the endangered North American Obeast, a genus of bipedal ungulates performed by Herrick to satirize the everyday dehumanization of fat bodies in our culture's current  frenzy over the "obesity epidemic." Further, by placing obeasts within a scientific context (via both these pseudo scholarly articles and her elaborate Museum for Obeast Conservation Studies (MOCS) installations) Herrick explores the power dynamics inherent in information dispersal, fact creation, identity formation and stigma.

Obeast: A Broader View, the second book in the set, locates the obeast project in a wider cultural context through a collection of (real) scholarly articles by seven contributors writing from the places where their current research and interests intersect with Herrick's work. The obeast project incorporates many academic fields (including science, cultural identity, satire/hoax/comedy, fat activism, and feminism), and appropriately this academic range is reflected in the backgrounds and topics of this book's contributors, which include fat activist Marilyn Wann, art historian Stefanie Snider, philosopher Chuck Dyke, comedian Jenny Hagel, political scientist Jennifer Denbow, historian Carl Dyke, and curator Rebecca Duclos.

Stars: Even The Sun With All It's Warmth Is Detached

Stars: Even The Sun With All It's Warmth Is Detached by Anthony Campuzano

Anthony Campuzano is known for his use of found language in his drawings, using text from newspaper headlines, Wikipedia entries, paperback novel covers, and song lyrics. His new book, Stars: Even The Sun With All Its Warmth Is Detached, created in collaboration and with support from the Institute of Contemporary Art at Maine College of Art, is a collection of his collages that incorporates images from supermarket tabloids and ruminates on the simultaneous brilliance and self-destruction of many celebrity figures.

Campuzano notes that in addition to collages, the book includes an essay that reflects on his creative process and the relationships between stars, paparazzi, and the public. "I hope people will look closer and take  time with the writing," he says. "I use a lot of writing in my work already and sometimes I don't think that people always read it enough times. Hopefully this book will be a sort of guide into some of the decisions I make in regards to the other work."

Virility Rituals Of North American Teenage Boys

Virility Rituals Of North American Teenage Boys by Matt Briggs

Virility Rituals Of North American Teenage Boys tells stories set at the boundary between real men and boys in man drag. In the title story, a man tells the various myths associated with his manhood from the Breakfast Club inspired obsession with "Elephantitis of the nuts" to an unexpected bodily testing sequence executed under the florescent glare of middle school lights. The characters in the fourteen stories live in the shadow of a failed macho culture. These stories have appeared in Birkensnake, The Chicago Review, Filter Magazine, MonkeyBicycle, Roethke Readings, Spork, and TRNSF Magazine


The Review of Contemporary Fiction wrote of Briggs' stories, "As with the songs, the stories are all about life out of kilter, told with charm from the perspective of the odd as norm, not so much magical realism than delightfully pernicious absurdity."

"Art, science, poetry, technology: these all create models for reality, chance forecasts for the future, incant their vision to the public, and ultimately inform complex nesting sets of shared truth. Science fiction is shockingly predictive, while science itself often demands broad suspension of disbelief. Those who seek to understand the ultimate nature of the universe are not only creating testable, theoretical models; increasingly, it's the questions themselves which unite us. Where do we come from? How can something come from nothing?" —Claire L. Evans

Parasite

Parasite by Stephen Boyer

Parasite, Stephen Boyer's debut novel is about a young 17 year old boy, Joshua Boyer, who runs away from his unaccepting Christian parents. Josh finds himself in San Francisco as a sex slave to an older man, but quickly tires of the abuse. He turns to working in the sex industry and searches for true love as he tries to figure out his new life. 


"If you're looking for a raw and slightly surreal missive from the land of poetic hustlers (and, really, who isn't?) Parasite is your book. Josh, the protagonist, is a queer teen with tranny tendencies and a psychedelic sensibility." —Alvin Orloff

"Josh is the sort of boy who experiences nearly everything through his ass, so he's not your usual sort of narrator, but if you've ever sat on anything weird, or anything splendid, this book will get to you just as it got to me." —Kevin Killian

Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers series extends the pioneering work of Paris-based Olympia Press's Traveller's Companion series of the 1950s and '60s, which published work that had been banned or censored through moralistic prohibition. Our series presents great new work that has been effectively "censored" by the market. In our day, the market is the definitive censor. The Fellow Travelers series proudly presents great work that the market has not endorsed, but that we believe in.

Delaney Allen's second book published by Publication Studio, PAINTING A PORTRAIT, asks the question "by searching for the other do we find another?" Chronicling two years of being alone, the book features landscape photographs, self portraits and notes he has taken on lonely journeys. Allen's particular "alone-ness" is palpable on every page - the stark, highly contrasted landscapes recall Thoreau's determination of solitude; his self-portraits are often an attempt to prove an existence while simultaneously trying to disappear; and his notes, while private, are begging to be read. What is our response? Every person on earth has experienced pain and beauty. This shared experience allows us a communal empathy and PAINTING A PORTRAIT fiercely expresses that sentiment. This book finds another just by being and being read. And in that way, we find that none of us are really alone. It is a beautiful and brave offering and it burns off the page.

People I Used To Know

People I Used To Know by Stephen Slappe

Stephen Slappe's book, People I Used To Know began as a file of archived pictures on Slappe's computer desktop. Slappe archived these photos since 2005, pulling them from social networking websites. He has manipulated these photos with algorithmically generated patterns to erase the faces and skin and leave only kitchens, yards, living rooms, clothes and a bit of mystery. Stephen Slappe has paired these photos with short phrases that describe his memories of these people. 


"The images and text in this book are an attempt at reclaiming mystery and subjectivity, recognizing that people I used  to know have changed into other people but, just as importantly, my version of them is worth saving." —Stephen Slappe

Lessons From A Lonely Italian

Lessons From A Lonely Italian by Sydney S. Kim

Sydney S. Kim's tricolored green, cream and pink book offers Italian sentences originating from an Italian phrase-a-day email. In Rebecca Sacks' introduction, she says that the sentences are "dark, situational, and often silly, they seem to lament the banality of their task. Here they are rescued and reinstated which may situate this project in the realm of salvation far more than that of the 'found.'" These sentences are surprising and reveal more to us than just your average lonely Italian.

Lone Wolf

Lone Wolf by David Schulz

Lone Wolf is a picture book whose name is derived from the provision of the USA Patriot act which seeks to create a legal framework that allows the government to surveil an individual not associated with any group or country believed to be engaged in terrorist activities, a.k.a. a Lone Wolf. Comprised of screenshots from American reality television shows depicting expressions of physical force, excerpts from congressional hearings of the 112th and 113th congresses on the Patriot Act, and a series of transcripts from the movie Let There Be Light (1946), by John Huston.

The photographic images have been converted into large halftone dot compositions, which might imply an information flow—or lack of—that exposes the roots of suspicion and intolerance that culminate in statements such as: "see something, say something."

Backwards Metamorphosis Library

Backwards Metamorphosis Library by Hyung-Min Yoon

Hyung-Min Yoon's Backwards Metamorphosis Library subverts the quintessential linear narrative to indicate a labyrinth of language.Taking Franz Kafka's novella Metamorphosis as a starting point, each text in this collection reverses the sentences of the original so that the story begins after the protagonist's death and ends with the famous opening sentence, matter-of-factly declaring that Gregor Samsa has changed into a giant bug. Backwards Metamorphosis Library includes 17 translations, in reverse sentence order, plus the original German, individually bound in black covers and packaged in a functional and handsome slipcover suitable for shelving.

Can These Antiques Ever Prove Dangerous Again?

Can These Antiques Ever Prove Dangerous Again? by Anna Gray & Ryan Wilson Paulsen

In Can These Antiques Ever Prove Dangerous Again? Anna Gray & Ryan Wilson Paulsen present a precisely photocopied, slightly over-exposed collection of miniature protest signs. A staccato stream of proposals, phrases, and foreign ideas are set in the bezel of traditional forms; and they all ask the same co-opted question –– a question that genuinely approaches notions of obsolescence, ineffectiveness, smallness, slowness. We like these four things because they invite contemplation, allow for the circuitous re that occurs in re-cognition, re-configuration, re-making.


The traditional picket works on us differently than a barrage of tweets. The remnant of hand lettering and the literal handle are important. A photocopy has a more committed presence than a re-blog, though they both remind us that someone believed in something enough to call for its multiplication and dissemination. The screen is not a page, scrolling is not pagination, ink is not the same as light or lack thereof. Photocopied texts circulate, their legibility decaying in teeming black and white spots, dog-eared and with increasing contrast. Signage, pickets, posters, these homegrown ideological adverts index a deep-seated desire to convey, to belong, and to be identified by a sense of belief.

Feel free to request an unbound copy to experiment with the innumerable ways of reconfiguration. Shuffle and arrange through the future or codify a unique order by binding the pages according to your own internal melody.

The Green Force Of Spring

The Green Force Of Spring by Howard W. Robertson

The Green Force of Spring is Howard W. Robertson's newest book of poetry. In these structured poems Robertson explores the vicissitudes of a poet's life, his contemplations and family dealings. 


"In the beginning I acted
reasonably I believe.

My life as a single parent
with a full-time job and two
daughters to raise was being
devoured daily by labor for
money, by labor for my
children, by labor for my art,
and by what little labored 
sleep I could manage, and so
after careful consideration I 
opted for the most rational 
remedy I could devise under
the circumstances: I
advertised."

Four Poets And A Play

Four Poets And A Play by Jeremy Reed

A vigorous, decadent poet in the symbolist tradition, Jeremy Reed holds a unique place in the literary and musical counterculture of England. Edmund White sums him up as "Patti Smith meets Rimbaud at Graceland." But Reed's milieu and his sensibility reach even further across time, linking punk rock to the Elizabethans to Bowie, glam, and contemporary giants such as John Ashbery, Thom Gunn, and John Weiners, poets who are the subject of Reed's scrutiny in these essays. At the center of the book is a play only Jeremy Reed could have written, "Behind Closed Doors," set in the brutal underbelly of London's art and literary scene, a circle of hell Reed explores via the recorded conversations of the late painter, Francis Bacon.


"Jeremy Reed's talent is almost extraterrestrial in its brilliance. He is Rimbaud reconfigured as the Man who fell to Earth, a visitor from deep space whose time machine was designed by Lautreamont and de Sade, and powered by the most exotic fuels the imagination has ever devised." -J.G. Ballard

Latitudes and Longitudes of the Principal Ports, Harbours, Headlands, etc., in the World by Lyndl Hall

Latitudes and Longitudes is a book that changes the world.

Failed States

Failed States by Jill Magid

Failed States is an exploration of coincidence and poetics amid the barriers and bureaucracy of governmental power. While on a trip to research the history of snipers in Austin, Texas, artist Jill Magid witnesses a mysterious shooting on the steps of the State Capitol. Twenty-four year old Fausto Cardenas fires several rounds in the air before being arrested.

Spreadeagle

Spreadeagle by Kevin Killian

New Narrative pioneer Kevin Killian's novel, Spreadeagle, has been two decades in the making. Skating nimbly over the vast surface of pop history through a forest of movie stars, pop sensation, and dazzling social technologies, Killian undoes the ties that bind a half-dozen Californian men -- Daniel Isham, the powerful, popular gay novelist; Kit Kramer, his insecure activist boyfriend; Daniel's father, Ralph Isham, the world-renowned poet who haunts him in death; Eric Avery, the Duchamp-loving twink who wins Kit's heart; and the shadowy Radley brothers, Adam and Gary, who destroy them all. This is the great gay novel that America has been waiting for.


Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers series extends the pioneering work of Paris-based Olympia Press's Traveller's Companion series of the 1950s and '60s, which published work that had been banned or censored through moralistic prohibition. Our series presents great new work that has been effectively "censored" by the market. In our day, the market is the definitive censor. The Fellow Travelers series proudly presents great work that the market has not endorsed, but that we believe in.

Path: A Generative Bookwork in Twelve Volumes

Path: A Generative Bookwork in Twelve Volumes by Kate Armstrong

Path is a 12 volume book with text generated by the physical movement of an anonymous individual living in the city of Montreal between 2005 – 2007.

Accumulating over time, these behavioural and technological points of contact come to form a pattern of language that both reveals and conceals a life lived in a city. This 12-volume, 7300-page box set edition is co-published by PS Vancouver and UNIT/PITT Projects, and includes a 168-hour mp3 audiobook edition on SD card. Please allow two weeks plus shipping time for delivery.

Overboard

Overboard by Lindsey Boldt

Oakland, California poet Lindsey Boldt's OVERBOARD is a deeply personal and often laugh-out-loud prose poem in three parts. She takes on Goldie Hawn as her avatar in a revamp of the classic 80's movie as poparchetype from new poetic (and sometimes scientific) perspectives. The role of narrator swims between the voice of Lindsey and Goldie interchangeably, whether it's through correspondence with ex-boyfriends or a narrative in which Lindsey witnesses Goldie, taller than the tallest skyscrapers, take her revenge on San Francisco in an unforgettable B- horror movie-like climax. With a uniquely feminist humor, Lindsey is able to splash the roles of mother, girlfriend, woman into total absurdity inviting us to track as best we can what it means to be a golden blonde heiress once spoiled by riches, now an under-water, lower-class amnesiac house-wife, now a poet living in Oakland.

Aionios

Aionios by Patrick Kelly

Patrick Kelly's Aionios is a limited edition book with spiraling angular hand cut shapes. Kelly hand cut each page of all eight books to create a sculptural space that the viewer can look into and experience with the flipping through of Aionios.


A translation of the word 'aionios' is everlasting and it is Plato's use of the word, "to denote that which has neither beginning nor end, that which is above time, but of which time is a moving image," that is at the core of these works. This series of books are designed to be viewed from either side with no true front of back and it is marked with time by the laborious hand cutting within each page. The book and hollowed out space are simultaneously the subject, a steady progression creating form and the absence that remains.

Patrick Kelly is an artist working in Portland, OR. He has been showing works throughout Portland, Seattle, and New York. He received a BFA from East Carolina University and an MFA from The George Washington University. Whether in drawings or sculptures his works involve ways of representing time and employ the use of light to reveal changing images.

The Dream of the Cold War: Poems 1998 - 2008

The Dream of the Cold War: Poems 1998 - 2008 by Grant Cogswell

Grant Cogswell's poetic ode to progressive politics, The Dream of the Cold War, has its roots in the deep history of radical activism in Seattle and the NW. Pivoting around the tragic suicide of Congressman Marion Zioncheck, in 1936, a defenestration Cogswell has called "an assassination without a trigger man," the multi-part epic title poem moves dreamily across the 20th century and into the spectacle of Seattle's neoliberal transformation in the early 2000s. Lyrical, searching, crazy, Whitmanesque — these poems are the blood that runs through the body of a committed activist.

Poet and activist Grant Cogswell spent the 90s and 00s fighting political battles in his hometown of Seattle. Famously, he helped initiate a grassroots campaign to build a city-wide monorail in a place that had failed to build rail transit in nearly a century of trying. His grassroots proposal won, triggering an avalanche of legal maneuvers and politicking that ultimately subverted the mandate and stopped the project. The story is captured in Stephen Gyllenhaal's soon-to-be-released film, "Grassroots."

Golden Brothers

Golden Brothers by STS

Golden Brothers is the debut novel of musician, 'zine writer ("Way Down Low," "The Gay Hotel," "Nightmare Girl") and Queercore activist, sts. It's a beautiful, utterly strange tale, a "gay alien sci fi pornographic love story," says sts. Eileen Myles says "Golden Brothers is made out of the strange uncommon beauty that fills the empty spaces outside of capitalism. Scenes change swiftly as music. Life and death are moments. The book is liquid. Read for yourself." Golden Brothers, for mature readers only, is the first book in our new Fellow Travelers series. It is co-published with Portland, OR-based Gay Bird Press.


Publication Studio's Fellow Travelers series extends the pioneering work of Paris-based Olympia Press's Traveller's Companion series of the 1950s and '60s, which published work that had been banned or censored through moralistic prohibitions. Our series presents great new work that has been effectively "censored" by the market. In our day, the market is the definitive censor. The Fellow Travelers series proudly presents great work that the market has not endorsed, but that we believe in.

Open Poem by Rachel Rose Alex Da Corte

OPEN POEM is a new book of poems by Rachel Rose with images by Alex Da Corte. Plaster, fucking, and the Blackberry submerge into ten sestets. Elements transfer into one another: plaster, shampoo primitively bombarding the Blackberry, the ball. Materials clash into textual gradients, fluid over vast shifts in scale, statically singular as abstraction.

The Cake Part

The Cake Part by Stacy Doris

Stacy Doris's The Cake Part is a fantastic redeployment of banned pamphlets from the time of the French Revolution in the form of a book-length poem. Long kept hidden because of their transgressive content, these pamphlets were stored in a secret archive at the Bibilothèque nationale called the enfer (hell). Highly pornographic and formally promiscuous, The Cake Part is an eruption of all the repressed joy and terror of that 18th century revolution, back into our time, into the 21st century. Set in the typography of Web 2.0, the design of this book searches for the modern day equivalents of these banned pamphlets in the virtual networks which aid and abet current revolutionary movements.

Revolution: A Reader

Revolution: A Reader by Lisa Robertson and Matthew Stadler (eds.)

Revolution: A Reader collects texts from across many cultures and times and organizes them roughly along a chronology of living, from "beginning," to "childhood," "education," "adulthood," and "death." The book brings the embodied fact of revolution into the lived present by engaging readers with language that takes us there, no matter where we are to begin with. We are all in revolution, now. Reading can make this fact primary and conscious and shared. Heavily annotated throughout, the book is, quite literally, a conversation. The annotations, by Lisa Robertson and Matthew Stadler — composed simultaneously and in response to one another — stitch a web of argument that links the book into a single thing, a reader. The book also features a narrative bibliography of revolution by David Brazil

The full table of contents, as well as current listings for dinners and other social gatherings that feature the reader can be found online at http://revolutionreader.com Revolution: A Reader is co-published by Paraguay Press, in France.

Sometimes They Sang

Sometimes They Sang by Helen Potrebenko

Sometimes They Sang is the story of Odessa, a young woman from a displaced rural family, set against a backdrop of feminist collectives and radical bookstores, unemployment and labour struggles, rising rents and government austerity measures. This is a working-class, feminist novel crafted by a smart, critical voice that doesn't idealize resistance to capitalism or patriarchy; Potrebenko is also frank and incisive when it comes to the dynamics of love, friendship and everyday life. PS Vancouver is pleased to offer a new edition of this novel, originally published by Press Gang in 1986 but sadly out of print for several years.

Whole Lotta Love

Whole Lotta Love by Myfanwy MacLeod

In "Whole Lotta Love" Myfanwy MacLeod takes on one of the most iconic songs by one of the most prolific bands in classic rock history to present the reader with an x-rated illustrated songbook. By fixing the song within the codex and picturing the lyrics via simple line drawings and bubble lettering, MacLeod privileges the visual over the sonic, offering another type of cover version. Through the highly-sexed depiction of the song, the artist perverts the dominant male codes of rock and roll by opening up a point of entry for female desire all the while maintaining her characteristic humor and wit.

Chloe Jarren's La Cucaracha

Chloe Jarren's La Cucaracha by Matthew Stadler

A murder mystery set in the storied mountain city of Guanajuato, Mexico, by the author of Allan Stein and Landscape: Memory. When a wealthy and respected woman of the people is found dead on a remote mountain hillside, an unlikely young photographer is thrust into the cross-hairs of American money and Mexican politics. Moving swiftly from lavish dinners to seedy bars, Chloe Jarren's La Cucaracha brings the genre formalism and precision of a John Le Carré novel to bear on "the mongrel dynamism, the deluded optimism of 21st century neo-liberal politics." 

It is available in our hand-made Jank Edition by PS, in an attractive PSEBM edition (suitable for bookstores) designed and produced by Vladimir Verano of Third Place Press, Seattle, WA (with cover designed by David Knowles), or as an eBook.

Looking Glass Book

Looking Glass Book by Melody Owen

Looking Glass Book is a series of hand cut collages by the artist Melody Owen inspired by two books written by Lewis Carroll: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Owen illustrated the books, chapter by chapter, through the medium of hand cut collage, drawing mostly on images from old copies of National Geographic. Owen treats these fragments as something more than pictorial illustrations, exposing the reverse of the collages en face. The result is a book which subtly oscillates between image and object, information and feeling.

Walter Benjamin's

Walter Benjamin's "Berlin Chronicle" Notices by Carl Skoggard

This book of new research and commentary by Carl Skoggard brings another volume of Walter Benjamin's work into a superb new translation. Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) began to ruminate on his Berlin childhood not long before he fled Germany for good, in 1933. The resulting "Berlin Chronicle" notices––forty in all––explore the ways of memory in relation to place––in light of Benjamin's own memories and in relation to his native place. Rich in themselves, these "Chronicle" notices provide a unique key to the esoteric texts Benjamin would produce for his much-loved Berlin Childhood circa 1900.

This book of new research and commentary by Carl Skoggard brings philosopher Walter Benjamin's engaging autobiographical text into a new translation that is faithful to Benjamin's voice. Berlin Childhood circa 1900, Skoggard writes, "conjures Benjamin's earliest years in a series of mysterious tableaux. But it also reflects an urgent moment in his adult life—one that posed challenges to everything he had thought and felt previously." Our Jank Edition is illustrated with thirty black & white photographs and includes a foldable, color map of Berlin, circa 1900, offset-printed by Container Corps, Portland, Ore.

Regarding Head Shape: Acknowledgment Of The Haircut As Form

Regarding Head Shape: Acknowledgment Of The Haircut As Form by Ryann Bosetti

Ryann Bosetti's Regarding Head Shape: Acknowledgment Of The Haircut As Form is a book of hairdressing and form. Ryann Bosetti, with a background in traditional mathematical hairdressing speaks of her realization of the importance of intuition and individuality in haircuts. Originally written as an essay during her time in Marfa, Texas Bosetti writes in her prologue, "Without dismissing the role of a fundamental structural standard in the architecture of the Haircut, it is my intent to review the subjective constructive consciousness and complex human dynamic that may replace the concept of mere replication as the backbone of this process....The variance between the mindset of the conventional Hairdresser and that of the progressive Hairdresser lies in their decision to accept or reject the cryptic challenge of this subjective artistic method." This book was typeset by Scott Ponik.

The Quilt and The Truck

The Quilt and The Truck by Nancy Shaver

Nancy Shaver is a visual artist living and working in Jefferson, New York. Her sculpture and photography celebrate the simple beauty of everyday utilitarian objects while simultaneously investigating the position of such materials within a greater aesthetic economy. Since 1994 Shaver has been the proprietor of the store Henry in Hudson, New York, a kind of laboratory retail space where Shaver collects and sells many of the objects that inspire or eventually make their way into her sculptural work. The Quilt and the Truck is a mediation on two such objects, handmade relics from a recent past. The book also contains documentation of Shaver's most recent body of sculptural work as well as an essay by Jean-Philippe Antoine, newly translated from the French by Anna Moschovakis.

Bad Printing Dumb Production

Bad Printing Dumb Production by Antonia Pinter

Antonia Pinter's Bad Printing Dumb Production is a book of Pinter's reproduced work that has been manipulated in the act of documentation. Included is an introduction by Sam Korman that touches on the question of indecipherable information in print form. 


"...why did I produce anything yesterday, when I reproduce it today. One way or another Pinter does not seem to answer this question and from the first page –– a rectangle of cropping the pink, de-saturated striations that subtly begin to reveal slight smudges toward the bottom of the image –– she offers a more oblique circumscription of the question..." -Sam Korman

Hirsch E.P. Rothko

Hirsch E.P. Rothko by Hirsch E.P. Rothko

Hirsch E.P. Rothko by Hirsch E.P. Rothko, a memoir of a year spent in the mountains living and working in a license plate shed, is a dramatized account of a lived experience. The nine-chapter narrative also contains a polemic about regional painting's relevance in a world in which the United Sates might be a regional, rather than international, power, and in an art world in which established methods of critical art—predicated on negation, subversion, parody and deconstruction—seem increasingly ineffective. Instead, it proposes a kind of creative critique based on invention and synthesis, the privileged form of which is fiction. In Rothko's own words: “Regionalism is not a style, but a mode of and model for making. It not so much suspends the viewer’s disbelief as it enables an artist to suspend his self-consciousness. The respite from criticality opens a fictive space where a conceptual artist can be a painter, a painter a writer, an art dealer a publisher.... Regionalism is the protective shell that allows us to be real artists again."

This Publication Studio bootleg edition appears courtesy of the artist Christopher K. Ho.

the buddhist

the buddhist by Dodie Bellamy

While ending an affair with a Buddhist teacher, Dodie Bellamy wrote about it simultaneously on her blog. This experiment in writing in extremis explores nuances of public shame, the vagaries of desire and rage, and Bellamy's confusion over the authenticity of group and individual spirituality. What is personal, what is public?  In the electronic age, can anybody tell the difference?   

the buddhist celebrates marginalized subjectivity as enacted in the work of female artists from Bessie Smith to Eva Hesse and Carolee Schneeman, to Bhanu Kapil and Ariana Reines.  The Allone Co. Edition contains the essence of the blog, as well as more extended narratives too explicit to post on line. Designed by Wayne Smith.

The Template Files

The Template Files by D. E. May

The Template Files: Works By D. E. May is a book of images of the artist's work that are interspersed with quotes from the artist. The book is fronted by an introduction written by Anna Gray and Ryan Wilson Paulsen, who wrote A Classroom Reader. D. E. May's work is reminiscent of Agnes Martin, Donald Judd, Robert Mangold and Gordon Matta-Clark. 


"This work reflects the abstract climate and restraint that I've tried to keep true in my work over time. A number of years ago a musician was in my workroom holding one of my constructions in his hand and commented, 'it looks like it has always been this way.' I carry that observation with me like a compass." --D. E. May

Elevator Mirror Displacements

Elevator Mirror Displacements by Sebastian Black

Sebastian Black's Elevator Mirror Displacements, mobilizes the form of the elevator safety mirror in a parody of Robert Smithson's 1969 work Yucatan Mirror Displacements. Black's work is installed in the faux-natural pockets of the urban environment and the expanded ocular space of Smithon's work is further dispersed by the convexity of the mirrors. According to Black, "the space of the elevator-with its chit chat requirements, its even and equalizing light, and its general trajectory toward the office, apartment complex, gym etc-is a space where our subjectivity and subjecthood are quite clearly exposed as inextricable. Its a volume of consensus, of parallel lines, not overlap, and least of all confrontation. The mirror carves out its own warped wedge of space where the overlap of bodies, and violence in general is perpetually immanent."

The Gift Shop

The Gift Shop by Matthew Offenbacher

Matthew Offenbacher's The Gift Shop with orange risograph prints is layered on black and white images of work in the exhibitions at the Henry Art Gallery's museum gift shop of Seattle. Matthew Offenbacher with these exhibitions asks the questions: What can an art exhibition do? How can artists work together? Who is the audience for an art exhibition? What responsibilities do artists have towards their audience? What responsibilites do audiences have? What is the relationship between artists and the institutions who support them? What can we learn from each other?

"Museum gift shops are fabulously liminal places. They sit in the middle of a complex web of transitional space, shifting methods of discourse, utopian and practical considerations, different understandings and misunderstanding of the purpose and function of art."

The Salem Singers

The Salem Singers by Tom Greenwood

The Salem Singers by artist and musician, Tom Greenwood, is an epic visual testimony that traces three generations of a family over the course of a century as they make their way from Russia to New York to California. Marion Curie helped Greenwood create the project and edit the film for The Salem Singers. Seven hundred fifty pages of images follow the clan of wandering troubadours through the great depression, suburbia, the American counterculture, love, divorce, murder and loneliness. A monumental account of lives caught in the currents of history. Greenwood says of The Salem Singers, "My work as a musician has been informed by abstraction, repetition and disintegration, ideas more common in visual mediums ... "

Tom Greenwood is well know for his music, particularly the Portland-based psychedelic rock band, Jackie-O Motherfucker. Artist Chris Johanson, who curated an art exhibition of Greenwood's work at New York's Cue Art Foundation says this of Greenwood's art and process: "He has a strong belief in chance and free flowing possibility. There is a keen interest in letting all the disparate elements that are around him and swimming in his mind find new fresh or unpredicted orders. His music and visual art vibrate a quality that chance, patient selection, and intuition have come together to create something new, something old, something that feels right."

A limited run of 15, The Salem Singers Package includes the book, a limited edition print, and a dvd with the film only shown in international galleries prior to this release.

$300 package including book, print, and dvd.

Why We Fight > Quran Neck

Why We Fight > Quran Neck by Pasha Malla

Why We Fight  > Why Fight the War  > Why the Fighting Force  > Why Fight Fire  > Why Fight the Firepower  > Why Fight the Power of Fire  > Why Beautiful Wants War  > Why, is it a good war?  > Because there is a Just War  > Because it is Just a War  > Because of this War > Because of her Neck  > Neck of the Quran  > Quran Neck.

Between 1942 and 1945, filmmaker Frank Capra filmed Why We Fight, a series of propaganda films, for the United States Government. In 2011, writer Pasha Malla transcribed the final film of Capra's series. He fed the transcription into Google Translate, changing it from English into French, then from French into Arabic, then from Arabic into German. After many translations, he changed the transcription back into English, then edited it. Why We Fight > Quran Neck features the original transcription on the left page, and the cut-up translation on the right. The book is illustrated with pseudo-propaganda posters by artist Aaron Scholl.

the still night air

the still night air by Mitzi Pederson

In collaboration with Seattle's Open Satellite Productions, Publication Studio presents the catalog for Mitzi Pederson's exhibition the still night air, which showed from February - March 2011 at Open Satellite.

From the Open Satellite website: "Glitter is applied to the broken edges of concrete blocks. Scrap-ends of two-by-four rest rest on mirrored paper. Long square wood dowels coated with black paint, silver leaf and glittered black sand are suspended from the ceiling … On site, Pederson altered, combined, and situated the materials, letting the exploration of each component's inherent physical properties and the unique architectural elements of the gallery space influence the final form of the work."

Mitzi Pederson is an artist living in Berlin.

Wanting is Easier Than Having

Wanting is Easier Than Having by Debra Baxter

Wanting is Easier Than Having is a collaboration between the artist Debra Baxter and a group of writers who explore visually and poetically the space between wanting and having. While much of Baxter's past work has addressed longing, her new work delves into how longing can become strangely comfortable. The work and the poetry in this book is about finding strength in uncomfortable moments and addressing the dichotomy of simultaneous success and failure, while also exploring Baxter's continued passion for rocks, minerals, and the seductive power of objects.

Public Access: 1999 & Beyond by Weekend Leisure

Public Access: 1999 & Beyond documents an artists' television project, curated by Weekend Leisure.  Employing an overarching theme of "science fiction", the five participants (Angus Ferguson, Kaitlin Fontana & Nicole Passmore, Emmet Hall, Nicolas Sassoon and Hank Bull & Patrick Ready) were asked to produce works that considered the do-it-yourself aesthetic and lack of resources of public access television, responding to its limitations as a medium of democratic creative expression.  The resulting video pieces - whose concepts arise from interests in found footage, community theatre, fan fiction, local news broadcasting, primitive computer animation and space travel - bring together individuals from backgrounds both in and out of the contemporary art world, extending their creative  potential beyond their respective fields.  Contains scripts, animation frames, interviews and colour photographs.  For more information about the project, please see http://publicaccess.helenpittgallery.org

Public Access

Public Access by David Horvitz and Ed Steck

Public Access is an art project produced by David Horvitz in late December 2010 and early January 2011. For roughly two weeks, he drove along California's coast from the Mexican border up through the Oregon border. Along the way, he stopped and took pictures of himself looking out at the beach and other scenic vantage points, his stance recalling the iconic romantic painting Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog by Caspar David Friedrich from 1818 and Bas Jan Ader's 1971 Farewell to Faraway Friends. He then uploaded these photographs to the Wikipedia entries for these locations, adding new images or replacing existent images. This action produced a flurry of discussion amongst the Wikipedia community, as its members tried to figure out his identity and the purpose of the photos. Many of the original photos were cropped or deleted entirely.  Graphic designer Eric Nylund designed the publication, which includes a text written by Ed Steck. This was made for the exhibition "As Yet Untitled: Artists and Writers in Collaboration" at SF Camerawork in San Francisco.

Signs and Symbols

Signs and Symbols by Justin Bland; photos by Chuen-Huei Yang

The primary character in Vladimir Nabokov's 1946 short story, Signs and Symbols, suffers from a condition called referential mania, which causes him to believe that "everything happening around him is a veiled reference to his personality and existence." In much the same spirit, these photographs by young Taiwanese photographer, Chuen-Huei Yang, are presented to consider how ordinary objects communicate with us.

This modest, densely illustrated volume is a narrative, using the voices of narrators who are not only unreliable but apparently unaware of the nature of events around them; the words spoken from the stage during the Rolling Stones' set at Altamont Speedway in 1969 are accompanied by a sequence of full-page images.

From the Golden West Notebook

From the Golden West Notebook by Jason Morris, Jesse Schlessinger, and Jason Grabowski

Inspired by the ACE Double books of the fifties, in which genre novels (especially Westerns and Science Fiction) were paired, From the Golden West Notebook brings together Jason Morris’ poetry and the first section of Thoreau's Walden, the chapter on “Economy.” Jason Morris’ serial poem (also called “From the Golden West Notebook”) follows a character named “I” through a hallucinogenic western landscape populated by the ghosts of Melville, Spicer, Thoreau, and the distressed magnetic reels of Bob Dylan’s Basement Tapes.  Thoreau’s account begins on July 4th, 1845, when he moved into the cabin he built. In the “Economy” section, he details the building of the cabin and lists his costs. From the Golden West Notebook is bound so the two writings mirror one another, tête-bêche (head to toe), and features the artwork of Jason Grabowski and Jesse Schlessinger

A History of New York

A History of New York by Matt Keegan

Artist Matt Keegan used Ric Burns's PBS documentary, New York, as the foundation for this dense visual history of New York City. The film was billed as a "seven-part, 14 ½ hour television event [that] explores New York City’s rich history as the premier laboratory of modern life. A sweeping narrative covering nearly 400 years and 400 square miles..." The same chronology and stories are found within Keegan's image-based iteration, but without Burns's omniscient narrator. Readers make their way though four centuries of New York City history with only themselves and their experience as guides. Printed in digital color and black-and-white.

How to Look at a Vancouver Special

How to Look at a Vancouver Special by Keith Higgins

In this slim, amply illustrated volume, Vancouver, BC, urbanist Keith Higgins provides a natural history and typology of the "Vancouver Special," a housing type that proliferated from the 1960s through the mid-1980s.

With 24 black & white photographs.

Lexicon (from Atlas of the Conflict)

Lexicon (from Atlas of the Conflict) by Malkit Shoshan

Israeli architect Malkit Shoshan restores lost histories by mapping the geography of conflicts in the Middle East since 1948. Her Atlas of the Conflict, to be published in Fall 2010 by 010 Uitgeverij (Rotterdam, Netherlands), documents the ways that urban planning and architecture have been used to carry out oppressive political agendas.

In June 2010 Shoshan came to Portland, Ore., for a Publication Studio dinner and discussion of her work. On that occasion we printed a full-color limited edition of the "Lexicon" of her book, of which we have 10 copies remaining (edition of 24).

event statements

event statements by Joseph Redwood-Martinez

In September of 2009 Joseph Redwood-Martinez began subscribing to e-flux, the art world email digest that reaches tens of thousands of institutions and individuals on a thrice daily basis. To make sense of the sudden deluge of information Redwood-Martinez began selectively reconfiguring pieces of each press release into a body of "sought poetry". From the author's introduction: "As a poetic intervention, event statements is an entirely subjective mapping of the archive by way of core samples and screen shots. The project is without beginning or end, it spills out from the milieu, acting poetically as a rhizome – ceaselessly establishing connections and complicating a worldview written by way of press release."

A Classroom Reader

A Classroom Reader by Anna Gray and Ryan Wilson Paulsen

These essays are adapted from four lectures delivered inside Anna Gray and Ryan Wilson Paulsen's exhibition, "The Classroom," at PDX Contemporary Art gallery, in Portland, Ore., during July of 2010. The exhibition featured a collection of pedagogical props which the lecturers — Anne Marie Oliver, Sean Regan, Helen Reed, and Barry Sanders — used, or not, in their talks. A Classroom Reader is the physical trace of those public events: a meditation on education through the subjects of mediology, metaphor, gift-giving, transmission, tradition, death, and the imagination. It features an introduction by the artists and a dozen B/W images of instructional illustrations drawn by each of the four speakers.

35 Images by Gil Blank / Book Eleven of The Odyssey  translated by Matthew Stadler

35 Images by Gil Blank / Book Eleven of The Odyssey translated by Matthew Stadler by Gil Blank and Matthew Stadler

These 35 images from a remote webcam above the harbor of Portland, Maine, have been driven backwards through the history of photographic reproduction by artist Gil Blank. Blank laser-engraved the image data onto bricks of machined graphite, scanned the bricks, and then printed those files using ink jet. The ink jet prints were scanned and printed in silver gelatin; the silver gelatin prints were then followed by photogravure, and so on, proceeding backwards through historical photographic technologies. As each subsequent print is scanned from a previous generation, it reproduces all the material artifacts of its forebears and compounds them with its own, perpetuating the original image only at the cost of effacing it entirely. 

Asked to produce a suitable accompanying text, writer Matthew Stadler chose to translate parts of Book Eleven of The Odyssey, using a method developed by the artists Hadley + Maxwell. Taking seven English translations, from Alexander Pope to Richard Lattimore, he organized the books in chronological sequence and transcribed one word or phrase at a time from each, skipping words only when both word and exact grammatical placement were repeated.

Owner of This World

Owner of This World by Shawn Records

Owner of This World is a book of photographs made by Shawn Records during the four months that his son, Max Records, spent working as an actor on the set of Where the Wild Things Are, Spike Jonze's film adaptation of the Maurice Sendak classic. Max was nine-years old at the time, and neither he nor his family had been involved in the film industry before. Records, the elder, is convinced that the book will disappoint anyone looking for insight into the film or the filmmakers and offers it as a manifestation of his own anxieties; a collection of fears and reassurances, upon letting his son out into a world that is beyond his control.

Haptic

Haptic by Tegan Moore, Elspeth Pratt, Lorna Brown

Haptic is a visual, written and tactile document of the work and process of two Vancouver sculptors, Tegan Moore and Elspeth Pratt, with a complex and provocative written contribution by Lorna Brown, and book design by Working Format. The term "haptic", referring to the sense of touch and act of touching, is now familiar in the description of devices like smartphones and touch-screens; in other words, the act of manipulating imaginary objects by touching a surface. The sensory knowledge of the textures of surfaces and the conveyance of subtle variations of meaning in gestures are only provisionally available in these interfaces, and the trace of a touch is meant to disappear the moment the screen is cleared or the hardware rebooted.  

Co-published with Vancouver's Helen Pitt Gallery (Unit Pitt Society for Art and Critical Awareness). With colour plates in glassine envelope, paper and plastic section dividers, and innovative anti-slip back cover.

I Look Up, Volume One, 1997 to 2000

I Look Up, Volume One, 1997 to 2000 by Mina Totino

Edited by Kathy Slade
Published by the Charles H. Scott Gallery
and Publication Studio Vancouver
July 2010

This book is the first in a series of three volumes that comprise Mina Totino’s I Look Up. Here Totino’s ongoing project of Polaroid cloud photographs is presented as a conceptual artist book. Totino has long been drawn to clouds as subject matter for their whimsical, sublime, and mundane character and for their rich associations from cloud watching as an idle pursuit to transcendent depictions by Kaspar David Friedrich and John Constable. The photographs are presented chronologically, with each Polaroid documenting the artist’s gaze and representing time and place via the sky.

This idiosyncratic but handsome volume, co-published with the Helen Pitt Gallery in Vancouver, presents a collection of gig posters, exhibition posters and other ephemera from the wild fusion of punk rock, new art, performance and political activism that collided in the Helen Pitt/Unit Pitt/P.I.G. gallery from 1979 to 1984.

Affidavit

Affidavit by Jamie Hilder

In 2008, Jamie Hilder, a Vancouver, BC, artist and critic was trained as a "Downtown Ambassador" by Genesis Security, a firm hired by that city's downtown merchants to make downtown public space more accommodating for their commercial needs. Hilder soon quit the program and kept his uniform so that he could assist people downtown in ways more to his liking, giving tourists information that the Business Improvement Association wouldn't want them to have: histories of illegal evictions, spectacularized aboriginalities, and civic policies aimed at removing visible poverty from the downtown core. He was arrested during his performance, and was later called as an expert witness when Pivot Legal Society, United Native Nations, and the Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users filed a Human Rights Tribunal complaint against Genesis and the Downtown Ambassadors. This is his affidavit.

Capitalism Inside an Organization

Capitalism Inside an Organization by Pravin J. Jain

Pravin J. Jain was an executive vice president at Enron International during the years of that company's greatest expansion and catastrophic collapse. In this long essay, first commissioned and published by Clear Cut Press in 2003, he offers a sobering and positive assessment of capitalism's destructive powers and suggests that progressive goals such as social equity, innovation, and better living standards are best pursued through an unsentimental embrace of capitalism, as it was theorized by Adam Smith in the 18th century.

French Theory Today: An Introduction To Possible Futures

French Theory Today: An Introduction To Possible Futures by Alexander Galloway

This set of five pamphlets documents a seminar given recently by Alexander R. Galloway at the Public School New York, a self-organizing educational program where class ideas are generated by the public. "French Theory Today" explores a new generation of French voices—Catherine Malabou, Bernard Stiegler, Mehdi Belhaj Kacem, Quentin Meillassoux, and François Laruelle—whose work has, to varying degrees, only recently emerged in the English-speaking world.

Each pamphlet includes the texts of the lectures, plus transcriptions of the Q&A, as well as special responses and contributions from Nicola Masciandaro, Eugene Thacker, Dominic Pettman, Jackson Moore, Stephen Squibb, Prudence Whittlesey, Taeyoon Choi, and David Horvitz.

Notes for an Art School

Notes for an Art School by Florian Waldvogel, Anton Vidokle, and Mai Abu ElDahab (editors)

A collection that was to appear in conjunction with projects alongside Manifesta6 before it was cancelled, Notes for an Art School was compiled and edited by  Florian Waldvogel, Anton Vidokle, and Mai Abu ElDahabl; designed by David Reinfurt and Stuart Bailey of Dexter Sinister.


An anthology of essays and interviews by international artists, curators, theorists and educators on the topic of art education.

The contributors to the book rethink the goals and structure of an art school, its ideological contexts, the positioning of its students to the art world, its relationship to social and political conditions, and the level of its discursive involvement, drawing on specific examples and on their own experiences to interrogate the appropriateness and validity of existing school models.

The Back Room - An Anthology

The Back Room - An Anthology by Matthew Stadler

The back room is an occasional series of presentations/symposia/bacchanals in Portland, Oregon, replete with food, drink, music, and general boisterousness garlanding the central pleasure of bright intellects voicing their excellent texts, winging it in conversation, and screening or presenting various textual and visual delights. It is an "open source" social/cultural tool, developed and enacted by the various people who choose to use it.

Past guests of the back room have included Walid Raad, Lawrence Rinder, Dodie Bellamy, Kevin Killian, Laurie Reid, Anne Focke, Matthew Stadler, Wayne Koestenbaum, Gore Vidal, and many others. Past musical guests have included YACHT, Stephen Malkmus, Mise en Abyme, Calvin Johnson, Valet, Dave Longstreth, White Rainbow, and Lucky Dragons.

This book collects documents of the ongoing conversations of the back room. Some were commissioned by and for the back room, others emerged from conversations started there, and a few merely bear a family resemblance. The collection is meant to inspire and inform copycat efforts in other cities.

Elspeth Pratt

Elspeth Pratt by Kathy Slade (ed.)

This is the first monograph published on the work of Canadian artist Elspeth Pratt that spans her career to date. For twenty-eight years Pratt has been producing sculptural work that negotiates the line between abstraction and representation to explore architecture and public space.

Recent exhibitions include Second Date, a large-scale public art project at Off Site commissioned by the Vancouver Art Gallery and Nonetheless at the Cooley Art Gallery in Portland, Oregon. She teaches at Simon Fraser University where she is Associate Director of the School for Contemporary Arts. Pratt is represented by Diaz Contemporary in Toronto.
