Mission Statement

Another New Calligraphy publishes limited-edition books and CDs. Our products are finely-crafted by writers and musicians, and then lovingly designed and handmade by us in our Chicago home.

Our aim is to work with our collaborators in establishing a singular visual and tactile presence in our increasingly virtual world. By making an artist’s album or manuscript visually recognizable, we hope to make it stand out in the great American media overload. 

Another New Calligraphy believes creating art in mass quantities lessens its value and cheapens its spirit. We feel the only thing that outshines the quiet thrill of making something beautiful with our hands is the satisfaction of passing it along to someone else's so they may reflect on the time, effort, and love that went into its creation.

In our early years we also published a subscription-based microzine, Shepherd's Check, programmed a regular music/reading event, Pish Posh, and produced a supplementary artifact series, PCM Grapheme. We were young and spreading ourselves a little thin. Today, Another New Calligraphy focuses on documenting small moments of wonder and sharing them with you.
