The Serving Library produces an eclectic cultural journal of mostly new writing in distinct online and print formats. These discrete texts, or “bulletins,” are released first as downloadable PDFs from this website, then collected in a printed volume every autumn.
Each new batch is assembled around a loose theme for an international audience of designers, artists, writers, and researchers. Previous themes include Time, Pedagogy, Typography, Psychedelia, Germany, Fashion, Numbers, Mediums, Sports, Redux, Color, Perspective, Public Fiction, and Translation.
The Serving Library Annual is now published by Roma Publications and distributed by Idea Books. All available back issues of the journal and its predecessors are available at Motto Books and the Institute of Contemporary Arts. It is also available for purchase in print from this website, either as single issues or on a subscription basis.
