STATEMENT OF INTENT
Aphonic Space is dedicated to publishing work that pushes a corporeal exploration of the space of the book, concerned more with materiality and the tension of the image than the way language can function on its own. It aims to present books and pamphlets that cannot exist other than as books and pamphlets, with specific attention paid to the photographic image and the totality of the body. In an increasingly digital world, where the text itself is often thrust upon websites rarely read or in mass produced books langouring in distribution centers, we insist that the work itself hits hardest when it can take on the heaviness of a secret. Our small edition sizes reflect not a push towards exclusivity, but rather an insistence that a work find the careful audience it deserves rather than generate excess.
Before solidifying into a project, several chapbooks were informally released by Aphonic Space. These include HOTEL ROOMS (2019) and 2ND PRELUDE TO THE DISAPPEARANCE (2016), both by M Kitchell.
FOR MORE INFORMATION
Please direct all inquiries to info(at)aphonic(dot)space. Please be aware that because of the extremely limited nature of these publications, no review copies will be made available. Similarly, due to the motivation behind the press itself, there are no digital facsimiles made of any official Aphonic Space releases. However, upon their release, authors remain free to do whatever they like with their own work. As a final note, Aphonic Space does not accept submissions.
