The Ice Plant (CA) is an independent publisher specializing in fine art, design, artists' books, mostly small run and and limited edition. They work closely with the artists, designers, and editors whose work they print, investing in long-term relationships with their audience, from conception to distribution. Their choices are dignified - smart, but not with cloying cleverness; think more...splendid. Eccentric. Gratifying.

C Revisions And Queries by Charles Gute. Artist and editor Charles Gute has produced a manner of abstracting the formal process of proofing and corrections in publishing parlance. By stripping corrected proofs of everything but his own notes, queries, and notations, he's able to present simultaneously part of his own process as it relates to his profession(s), and give an alternate reading to the often dry world of art writing. Included are "texts" from artists such as Dan Graham, Thomas Hirschorn, Tacita Dean, W.G. Sebald's The Rings of Saturn, Brian Eno, Cai Guo-Qiang, etc. Sample notes from those sampled texts include: [avoid end-of-line break with this made-up word], BYE-BYE [please change all], "practice" or "praxis"?. It's funny and engaging. Which is unexpected with a lot of these types of approaches. 8.5" x 11", 96 pages. $35. Add to cart
