Change is Coming.

Change is Good.

Sound American is changing. After five years of being a one man, online-only publication, SA is committing to being more wide-reaching and sturdier publication—one that includes a broader set of voices on a greater variety of topics.

 

We’re asking for your help in our growth. Starting with SA21: The Change Issue, which will be released on May 6th, we will be including the option to purchase physical printings of each issue alongside our continuing free online presentation.

 

The 127-page book was designed by Remake Design (who also created the now iconic Donald Judd: Writings book) and features words by or about Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, Ornette Coleman, Nicole Kaack, Bradford Bailey, G. Lucas Crane, Jennie Gottschalk, Ambrose Akinmusire, Mats Gustafsson, Peter Margasak, Terry Riley, Kim Brandt, John Cage, Josh Sinton, Edgard Varése, Marc Hannaford, John Zorn, Matthew Mehlan, Million Tongues Festival, Alex Mincek, Lester St. Louis, and Steve Lehman. Each book is thoughtfully designed and printed in Belgium on quality paper with a lay-flat binding. Beyond being simply a journal issue suitable for the periodicals section of your library, these are artfully designed and rigorously constructed books meant to sit aside your favorite novels.

 

Each issue is:

 

- Printed using offset lithography in a special Pantone color throughout (which will change each issue)

- Bound with the highest quality thread-sewn binding, using cold glue and Otabind™, so the book lies open and stays completely flat, and will last for a lifetime.

- Printed on Holmen paper, an excellent Swedish stock

- Printed by die Keure, one of the finest book printers in the world in a limited edition of 500
