Publications in open editions.
Nothing signed or numbered.
-To make art in the form of publications.
-To publish reference materials that support exhibitions, experiments and other people.
-To devise a business structure in which the publications are affordable and their value defined by what one might get out of owning them, rather than from reselling them.
-To exploit the physical possibilities of accessible, consumer-level printing and binding processes such as comb binding, coil binding, photocopying and rubber stamping, and to use these technologies in inventive ways.
-To execute production in-house as much as possible.
-To operate with autonomy and integrity.
-To avoid confusing integrity with rigidity.
-To participate meaningfully in the present and necessary psychic shift.

The Press offers a discount to libraries that would like to acquire Diagonal Press publications for their collection. Please inquire via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more details.
The Press works with a very small group of independently run shops to broaden the project's audience. Please inquire via email, email@example.com, for more details.
Because the Press produces small batches of inventory in-house, orders are limited to three of each item.
These are primarily DIY publications— hand-bound, hand-stamped and assembled in the studio. They are irregular by nature. The press does not offer returns or exchanges unless something catastrophic happens during shipping, in which case your item will be replaced.
