This March 15th, 2012, marks the opening of a reinvention of the traditional newsstand.

Colpa Press will partner with the Central Market Community Benefit District
to create a venue for artist books, prints, and albums, on the corner of Market and 6th St.

Edicola is dedicated to providing a platform for emerging artists to reach
their community through support from the public and by repurposing a kiosk that would otherwise be vacant.

The stand will feature artists and musicians, both local and international, who work with the print format.

It will focus on work that pushes the independent publishing envelope, through creative strategies of printing
paired with high concept work.

As funds are made available, Colpa Press, will choose a local artist every month,
to publish, and his or her work will be featured at the kiosk.

Colpa will also choose an artist to design a poster for Edicola, every month,
and this poster will be made available exclusively at the kiosk.

Additionally, Colpa Press, will publish a monthly newspaper
featuring artists that are new to the kiosk, art and music reviews, including
new music features from Aquarius records, as well as market street news and local events.

Edicola is set on challenging the current state of publishing and suggesting
that we are far from the death of print. Through this program, independent press
can receive the stimulus it needs to be revitalized and flourish.

Edicola’s hours are Thursday and Friday 4-7 pm and Saturday + Sunday 12-5pm.



We are asking for submissions of art books, magazines, small prints, zines, records, tapes  and cards.

Please send images and a short description to hello@colpapress.com.

This is for you.

Yes, it’s cause we love you.
