We enjoy making things with our hands. We enjoy holding things with our hands. We like to slow things down. We want each book or CD that goes from our home to yours to be a little piece of art. We hope that whenever you hold an ANC product in your hands, you will reflect on the time, effort, and love that went into making it, and smile.
We treasure simple, community-based living. We prefer shaking hands, eye contact, and the occasional hug to wasting time, energy, and money. We were bred here, and we love here, and here is where we should be.
Why limited edition?
We are excited by special things. We salivate over a numbered object. We think smallness is adorable. We have limited resources and get frequent hand cramps.
Will you publish my novel?
Possibly. We prefer to publish shorter works, but if your novel is one of the most spectacular things we’ve ever read, we’ll be willing to put the extra time, money, and effort into turning it into a beautiful book. As a rule, we don’t necessarily like descriptors such as “novel” or “novella” or “long short story.” We like good writing.
Will you sell me a digital album?
No. That’s great that you are actually willing to pay for a computer file, but we think that’s pretty ridiculous. We’ll sell you something you can touch and smell and hug when you go to bed at night.
Will you let my friend design my book/CD cover?
No. Part of our mission is to “build an artistic community with a powerful, unifying identity.” We can’t do this if our products are designed by a diverse array of individuals outside of ANC. We’re sure you’re friend is a wonderful artist, and he can probably design you a beautiful book or album. If that’s the case, you probably don’t need us, anyway. What are you waiting for?
