Brooklyn Arts Press, BAP, is
a small literary press devoted to publishing art monographs and poetry
books by emerging artists. Experimentation,
innovation, and devotion to formal and historical aspects of art
are all honored, as these traits supply the means by which all works
are created and diverge. They hope to serve the community by placing
of varying aesthetics side by side, and by subverting the current
notion that artistic camps exist in vacuums, apart from the culture
they reside and apart from other camps. Language and imagery will
be used to whatever ends, by whatever means, by the voices that manipulate
them, which are by nature numerous and diverse.
BAP was founded in 2005 as an organization designed to publish emerging poets and artists. The staff is comprised of unpaid loyalists, whose editorial resolve, time, effort, and expertise will soon allow BAP to publish 5-6 new books a year.
