bending library

The bending library is a publishing project and lending library born of quarantine, when we craved physical, unmediated art experiences and intimate venues in which to have them. 

In response, we started the bending library to make small editions of artists' books and circulate them to readers using a lending library model, where books are delivered directly to readers' homes for 3-week checkouts.

Books (especially library books) carry the traces of their readers. We like books that are experiences, that accrue meaning through use and that bend our expectations of what a book might be.

Stay tuned and check-out our upcoming editions from artists Alex Wiseman, Morgan Ritter, Justin L'Amie, and Erin Charpentier & Travis Neel.
