Editorial Focus

Another New Calligraphy publishes limited-edition books and CDs. Our products are finely-crafted by writers and musicians, and then lovingly designed and handmade by us in our Chicago home.

Our aim is to work with our collaborators in establishing and maintaining a singular visual and tactile presence in our increasingly virtual world.

Another New Calligraphy seeks work that successfully balances originality and sincerity. We love music and writing that simply exists within its own space, rather than making concessions to genre or attempts at mass accessibility.

Tips From the Editor

Please be aware of the small-scale nature of our press. We believe creating art in mass quantities lessens its value and cheapens its spirit. The only thing that outshines the quiet thrill of making something beautiful with our hands is the satisfaction of passing it along to someone else's.

At this time, our niche may seem to be primarily of a poetic nature but we always have our eyes set on broadening our catalog. We are currently on the lookout for more music, short-form nonfiction writing, and quality work by marginalized voices.

We typically move fast, and you can expect to hear from us within a few weeks if we are interested in working with you. If you do not, we appreciate your interest but do not find your submission right for ANC.
