We sell artists books.
Working from a vibrant history of commissioned artists books, Small Editions collaborates through studio visits and conversations with artists to publish small edition bookworks and artists books. Seeking to support experimental artist publishing, we developed a business model that provides book production services to commercial clients as a means for funding our artists book publishing projects.
Since 2012 Small Editions has published artists books with Andria Morales, Anne Vieux, Annie Pearlman, Benjamin Niznik, Beverly Fresh, Erin Sweeny, Gregory Kalliche, Lauren Clay, Nicole Killian, Noah Breuer, Siebren Versteeg, Sheryl Oppenehim, Ted Gahl, Will Anderson, and Will Rahilly. Our books are in the collections of MoMA, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Walker Art Center, Kohler Artist Book Library, Whitney Museum of American Art, Cleveland Institute of Art, SAIC, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Cranbrook Art Museum. We are involved in leading workshops for artists on how to make books through The Center for Book Arts, Blonde Art Books, and other institutions. We have presented on our works at venues such as MoMA PS1 and Independent Curators International. Our goal as publisher is to use our combined book production and exhibition space to create bookworks that unabashedly borrow from ideas and techniques of both worlds (contemporary art and books), that further the ideas of both, and to provide a space for contemporary artists to further their practice through artists book production.

Paperless. What traces are left when we burn our words, allow them to dissolve? What do we hear in the silence of a pause or a period? Although silence, redaction, and erasure emerge as different forms of not-knowing, each divulges a narrative. Omissions are never necessarily mistakes and redactions are proof that nothing can truly… More

Color is light and energy. Our body and mind are energy, vibrations, and frequencies. All are interconnected within the framework of our perceptive surroundings. Color enters through our eyes and skin, affecting our emotions, moods, and mental state of being – it is the overlooked factor of how we can maintain balance and control. Four… More
