Uniformbooks is an imprint for the visual and literary arts, cultural geography and history, music and bibliographic studies. The uniformity of the format and the expansive variety of the list and its subjects, is characteristic of our open approach to publishing. The printed quarterly Uniformagazine ran to ten issues, from 2014 to 2017, gathering contributions by the writers and artists that we work with, sometimes thematically, as well as slighter or singular content.
This issue features: On Media Meteorology Jussi Parikka. From Outside to Inside Jean-Luc Vilmouth. Imagined, Observed, Remembered Peter Blegvad. Recalling Mister Paranoia Michael Hampton. These folders… Simon Cutts. Reading Hollywood in the Smog David Gissen. Estuary Phil Owen. Cloud Study John Bevis. The Lane Luci Gorell Barnes. Devonmoor Pottery. Reflection on the Atomic Bomb Gertrude Stein. Field Gate. Where We Are Erica Van Horn.
Several parts of this issue are concerned with place, whether by definition or naming, or visibility and detail. Erica Van Horn’s description of the five separate named elements that comprise the postal address for the remote Irish location of Coracle, the publishing project she directs with Simon Cutts, is from the online journal that she has kept for almost ten years (somewordsforlivinglocally.com), extracts of which were published as Living Locally by Uniformbooks in 2014.
Despite the expansive means of online publishing and social media—the new structures of dialogue and response—the passage of communication by post, the direct despatch and dissemination of printed publications, remains the prevailing means of exchange for small-scale independent publishing. From the local to the global and back, connections are established and cultivated in a network between publishers, bookshops, libraries and readership.”
