Another New Calligraphy publishes limited-edition books and CDs lovingly designed and handmade in our Chicago home. By providing our collaborators' work with a singular visual and tactile presence, we hope to make it stand out in the great American media overload. Creating art in mass quantities lessens its value and cheapens its spirit. We feel 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 so they may reflect on the time, effort, and care that went into its creation.
Tips From the Editor
Another New Calligraphy seeks work successfully balancing 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. Given the nature of our books and the philosophy guiding their production, we typically prefer shorter written material.
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, nonfiction writing (not memoirs), and quality work by marginalized voices. In term of writing, we are most interested in thematically linked work rather than general collections.
