Editorial Focus

We are a small, independent, not-for-profit press dedicated to publishing sublime art & literature, i.e., eccentric art & obscure texts, absurdist fiction, experimental visions, and works in translation. Our innovative Absurdist Texts & Documents series features works designed to disrupt, disorient, and smash boundaries—academic, cultural, literary, and philosophical.

Most of the queries we receive come from people who have clearly not read our books. Do not send a query without being familiar with the authors and artists we publish, i.e., read our books.
