Ugly Duckling Presse

Ugly Duckling Presse is a nonprofit publisher for poetry, translation, experimental nonfiction, performance texts and books by artists. Through the efforts of a volunteer editorial collective, UDP was transformed from a 1990s zine into a mission-driven small press that has published more than 300 titles to date, and produced countless prints and ephemera.
UDP favors emerging, international, and “forgotten” writers, and its books, chapbooks, artist’s books, broadsides and periodicals often contain handmade elements, calling attention to the labor and history of bookmaking.

Edited with introduction by Yevgeniy Fiks. Text by Kate Baldwin, Joy Gleason Carew, Jonathan Flatley, Lewis Gordon, Raquel Greene, Harmony Holiday, Christina Kiaer, Maxim Matusevich, Vladimir Paperny, Meredith Roman, Jonathan Shandell, Marina Temkina, et al.

Wayland Rudd (1900-52) was an African American actor who moved to the Soviet Union in 1932 and lived there until his death in 1952. He appeared in numerous Soviet films and theatrical performances, and served as a model for paintings, drawings and propaganda posters. Using Rudd’s personal story as a springboard, The Wayland Rudd Collection combines over 200 Soviet images (paintings, movie stills, posters, graphics, etc.) of Africans and African Americans produced between 1920 and 1980 with responses from contemporary artists, writers and scholars.

Known internationally as one of Mexico’s most important conceptual artists, Ulises Carrión (1941-89) played a decisive role in defining and conceptualizing the genre of the artists' book through his manifesto, The New Art of Making Books (1975), which he wrote soon after the 1972 publication of SONNET(S) and his move from Mexico City to Amsterdam, where he opened the legendary bookshop gallery, Other Books and So, the first space dedicated exclusively to artists' publications and an important precursor to such artists’ book hubs as Printed Matter.

One of Carrión's earliest bookworks, SONNET(S) represents a landmark shift in the artist's output from poetry to artists’ books. Here, . . . .go to book page >>
