Pre-Order the LED Anthology

We’re eagerly awaiting a proof of the paperback LED Anthology, which means it’s time for you to place an order. If you pre-order the anthology, we’ll ship your copy with some sweet letterpress ephemera, hot off the press. Don’t wait though, once we approve the proof and our books ship, any purchase will just be a regular ol’ order (still a pretty swell deal at only $6.00).

You’re probably wondering where you can place your order. Allow us to introduce our new website! Partial Press is the umbrella organization behind LED (you may have noticed it on our about page) and now that LED is moving on to this exciting new phase, we decided it was time to launch Partial Press and begin rolling out other exciting publishing projects. Visit the Catalog Page to ore-order the LED Anthology and be sure to check out our other publications for sale.

LED news will continue to be posted here with our archive, but you’ll want to check Partial Press for other announcements and opportunities in the realm of experimental and small press publishing. The Partial Press Facebook page (formerly our LED page) will continue to feature LED content. You can also follow Partial Press on Tumblr if you’re into that.

Here’s a mock-up we’ve made in the meantime. Designing a cover that spoke to the nature of the LED display and still took advantage of the codex form was a fun challenge. We can’t wait to feel it in our hands!

May Deadline Approaching!

Attention writers: we are currently accepting work for our May installation. The deadline is April 5th, so send us up to 3 pieces that are each under 500 words. Go to our Submissions Page for more details.

June will be our final installation, so this is your second to last chance to get your work on our LED display (and our website, and in our forthcoming print anthology)!

“The Dragon Imelda” at Genesis Art Supply

Earlier today we installed our December publication, The Dragon Imelda, by Cecilia Pinto at Genesis Art Supply. (Then we spent a fair amount of time walking around and look at art supplies!)

Don’t worry if you’re not an artist, Cecilia’s short story is well worth the trip, and it will be up in the front window for the next 3 weeks!

Please enjoy these photos from earlier this evening.
