Photo Op | Casting

October 1, 2008

A new addition to the Historical Fiction Press catalogue. Eriko Miyagawa’s casting photos from the Kite Runner, a film she worked on over a year ago. The photos feature faces of ethnic minorities from the Western Chinese province of Xinjiang. When we saw the photos, we were amazed by the diversity of ethnicities, ages and expressions.

Rainbows in Curved Air

August 19, 2008

Our little publishing concern, Historical Fiction Press, is now distributing Pash Buzari‘s book Rainbows in Curved Air. The book was printed in 2003 as a component of Buzari’s contribution to the 50th Venice Biennale (Utopia Station). It’s a fascinating collection of images of Buzari’s architecturally concerned work and research, with texts by Philippe Parreno, Doreen Massey and Hans Ulrich Obrist. You can pick up a copy through Amazon.

Oh, and there are a few copies left of our book Dead Animals. Now also available through Amazon.

Permanent Resident

May 21, 2008

I’m happy to hear that Christoph Keller‘s KIOSK project, a traveling exhibition of nearly 6,000 publications by about 400 independent publishers, will soon have a permanent home in Berlin! Christoph has been developing and exhibiting the archive internationally for 8 years, but the increasing cost and logistic difficulty of moving around 2.5 tons of books led to the decision to find them a proper home. The Staatliche Museen zu Berlin one of Germany’s leading art book archives has agreed to take on the KIOSK project as a special collection. They will continue to develop the collection until 2010. Following 2010, the archive will stand as a record of global independent publishing from the first decade of the 21st century. I’m happy that Historical Fiction Press and our Dead Animals book will be part of it!
