Mission Statement

Another New Calligraphy is a nonprofit project that helps musicians and writers establish and maintain an effective visual and tactile presence in an ever-increasingly virtual world, all while building an artistic community with a powerful, unifying identity. Our hope is that by making an artist’s album or manuscript visually recognizable, we can help their art stand out in the American media overload. Operating outside the realm of traditional record labels and publishing houses allows us to work under a new model based on the simple acts of creating and sharing.

ANC lives light, small, and local. We believe that creating art in mass quantities lessens its value and cheapens its spirit. ANC is also touchy-feely. We believe that nothing can replace the satisfaction of holding something beautiful in your hands. We like technology, but we like pretty things better.
