About Insert Press

Insert Press produces innovative art & literature in Los Angeles, CA. 
We endeavor to create dynamic conversations among various artistic disciplines and to support emerging artists and writers in the interest of contemporary arts and letters.
General Projects, our modest 185 sq. ft. gallery in Lincoln Heights, serves as an extension of the press, exhibiting contemporary visual art and often generating artist books and editions. 
Our Manifestoh! series, edited by Shook, publishes works in translation from the contemporary and historical avant-garde. 
The Insert Press catalog features a diverse assortment of books and print editions, from hardbound volumes to unique handmade editions.
