Corina Reynolds is Director of Small Editions, an artist book studio that publishes and supports the creation of new contemporary artists books. Since co-founding Small Editions in 2012, Reynolds has led classes in independent book publishing, zine making and bookbinding, curated exhibitions of both artists’ books and contemporary art, organized panels on contemporary artist books and has lectured the bookworks of Small Editions and other artists. She serves as Vice Chair on the Board of Directors at The Center for Book Arts, New York and holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art.

Small Editions
publishes artists’ books with contemporary artists and provides an opportunity for professional curatorial development through its biannual Curatorial Residency program. Working from a vibrant history of commissioned artists books, Small Editions collaborates through studio visits and conversations with artists to publish small edition bookworks and artists books. Seeking to support experimental artist publishing and a stronger dialogue between curators and artists’ books, we developed a business model that provides book production services to commercial clients as a means for funding our artist publishing and curatorial residency projects.

Blonde Art Books
, founded in 2012 by Sonel Breslav, is a New York-based publisher and organization dedicated to promoting self-published and small press art and poetry books through exhibitions, book fairs, symposia, and online exposure.
