Established in 2012 in the walk-in closet of co-founder Kimberly McClure’s South Slope apartment, Small Editions has grown year after year, moving to a small studio in Greenpoint in 2013 and to their current space in Red Hook in 2014. An innovative book arts workshop and publisher, Small Editions is focused on expanding the conversation between bookworks and contemporary art. They invite emerging artists to the studio whose practice would “evolve into something new by working in book format and, in turn, would offer something new to the history of artist books.” Together, McClure and co-founder Corina Reynolds originated a business model that provides production services to commercial clients in order to fund their artist publishing projects. Since 2012, Small Editions has published over thirty artist books aimed at “expanding the conceptual grounds” of the medium using a variety of binding techniques and printing processes. These include risograph, laser cutting, and aluminum printing. Small Editions is committed to making their work accessible to the public through a regular program of exhibitions and lectures. While the Small Editions team has a variety of professional training, Reynolds credits her mentorship with Michele Burgess at Brighton Press “as one of the reasons Small Editions exists today.”   –SR
