NewLights Press is creating books, prints, noise, poems, and book-print-noise-poems

We make books, prints, bookish objects, and print-like drawings, all functioning in the generative tension between text, image, object, and time. All of our books and prints are emphatically made, emphatically physical. We love the noise and clamor and messiness of the world, and we want the work to reflect that world. You can see all of the NewLights publications, including digital archives of out-of-print titles on our website: https://www.newlightspress.com/

All subscribers will receive a certain amount of prints and books per year (see the subscriber tiers for details). Patreon subscribers will also receive access to news and updates, as well as (very) occasional work-in-progress posts with process photos and notes on conception and production, including experiments and failures that will probably never be shown elsewhere.

Why does NewLights need Patreon subscribers? In order to hold to two core principles that fuel the work—

Affordability: Books and prints, made in multiple, are a special kind of public art—they can be owned and read by many people, but can still be experienced in the intimate space of the home. In order for that public aspect to be successful, people need to be able to afford the work. The NewLights Press is committed to producing and publishing artwork that is ambitious and rigorous in concept and construction, but that is also—whenever possible—priced so that most people can buy and live with it. A predictable, monthly income and set number of publications that already have homes will help us plan and manage costs and pricing effectively.

Experiment and Play: Experimentation in, through, and with the process of production of our various projects is central to how the NewLights Press works. It’s important that we respond to what a piece needs and let it develop. The Patreon subscriptions will allow NewLights to produce work in a more sustainable way while still keeping an open-ended and experimental approach to projects.
