Editorial Focus – Light Factory Publications (LFP) is a publisher of small-scale, small-run artist books. LFP focuses on collaborations between artists to produce bookworks with content that is urgent in its need to meet a public. Artist books by emerging and experienced writers or artists are edited and produced using quality digital printing, hand binding, found materials, and collective labour. Besides collaboration, LFP values open distribution models. Most LFP titles are available for free or by exchange. Enabling artistic production and exchange is what Light Factory Publications is about.
Each LFP project is unique in its scope, methods, and meanings. LFP is currently focused on the Present Cartographers series and the stand-alone project, Reading the Migration Library. Both projects emphasize the human and material conditions of border zones and states of migration.
Submissions – LFP does not accept unsolicited manuscripts. Watch for calls for submissions to specific artist-run projects which appear from time to time on this website, on our social media feeds, and in our newsletter.
People – Lois Klassen is the Lead Artist and Editor of LFP and the projects, Reading the Migration Library and Renegade Library. Collaborating artists, designers, and book artists come together to produce each project as required. Some of the artists and writers behind Reading the Migration Library are listed here.
