Unbound Book Festival

We want to extend a huge thank you to the Columbia Daily Tribune for sponsoring our table at the Unbound Book Festival. We had a truly wonderful time sharing our Partial Press publications with Columbia’s readers, and encouraging writers to enter our new LED writing competition!

We were honored to present “A Good Song” by Jennifer Maritza McCauley, and so pleased by the enthusiastic reception received by the piece and the LED display itself!

Thanks also to Linda Hays of the Tribune, who captured some lovely images throughout the day:

Book Launch and Reading

The LED Anthology is printed. All that’s left to do is celebrate!

Please join us for a reading by LED authors to officially launch the book. We’ll be returning to the site of our April installation: the wonderful RoscoeBooks! The event will begin at 6:30pm on January 7th, 2017. Join our Facebook Event for updates.

We’ll have refreshments and crisp new books – what could be better?

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!
