The Operating System

“In a world of disrupt and competition and polar dichotomies,
The Operating System crucially widens space for what is possible.”

 
“A revelation…what publishing should be but rarely is”


“a press that accepts no boundaries between forms,
that views literature as inseparable from the rest of the arts,…
a rarity, a potent force in lineage with the great art-book publishers of the past.”

“Working with The OS is like coming home.”
