The Press offers a discount to libraries that would like to acquire Diagonal Press publications for their collection. Please inquire via email, email@example.com, 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, firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
