Welcome to the Corresponding Society’s digital library. Our press distributes creative data across media; our agencies include a biannual print journal, chapbook projects, and now this online textual resource. Our press is a nonprofit adventure in discovery and critical engagement; we eschew overly restrictive notions of intellectual property whenever possible because we believe such modes are dubious and prohibitive to artistic development. The texts in our digital library will include both projects developed specifically for online distribution as well as de-commoditized books we have arranged to share freely. This growing collection will be the home of the Correspondence archive and new chapbooks and artists’ books.
