Siglio Press

The most recent catalogue from Siglio Press celebrates the independent publisher's tenth anniversary, as well as it's move from LA to the Hudson River Valley in New York. Founded in 2008 by Lisa Pearson, Siglio is "dedicated to publishing uncommon books that live at the intersection of art and literature. Siglio books are cross-disciplinary, hybrid works that defy categorization."

Their titles include books by or about John Cage, Marcel Broodthaers, Ray Johnson, Sophie Calle, Nancy Spero, and many other artists and authors.

2018 will see the list of titles Siglio have published rise to thirty, including a forthcoming compendium of writings by Dick Higgins, called Intermedia, Fluxus and the Something Else Press: Selected Writings by Dick Higgins. Edited by Steve Clay of Granary Books and Fluxus artist and scholar Ken Friedman (who worked with Higgins, as the General Manager for the Something Else Press in the early seventies), the book will be the first posthumous title by Higgins, who died twenty years ago this October. [Lisa, Steve or Ken: hook me up with a copy of this book, please].
