The Heavy Collective in partnership with good friend Chris Loutfy are very excited to announce the launch of Sydney’s Press Books.
PRESS is a project bookstore with a focus on independently published work from Australia and overseas. Located in Chippendale Sydney, PRESS celebrates the full scope of publishing, from the print and staple, right through to established international imprints. PRESS is a community space for those who are passionate about independent publishing in all its forms, it is an opportunity for people to share and champion unique publications that exist outside the realm of conventional bookstores.
We’ve been working tooth and nail on the hammer and nails over the last 3 months and it’s time to sit back, rest our claws and quench some thirst. Please join us from 12pm Saturday for ribbon cutting, beer guzzling and paper goods from the best in the business. 116 Abercrombie Street, Chippendale.
PRESS will stock: Perimeter Distribution, Rainoff Books, Gang Atelier, PAM Books, Hamburger Eyes, Mossless, Heavytime/Smalltime Books, Hard Workers Club, Left Out Store, Bloom Publishing, Editions Ltd. as well as a wealth of independent and self published printed matter.
If you have a zine or a self published photobook you would like included at the launch of Press Books, please contact us at email@example.com before the 23rd of October.

MOSSLESS: Flint used to be one of the country’s largest car manufacturing city and now in its decline it’s become one of the country’s most dangerous cities. How are the people of Flint dealing with this decline?
Juan Madrid: People get by. That’s the way it seems to be everywhere—you do what you need to do to survive, at least in the poorer neighborhoods. It’s difficult because most of the people in Flint have no way out of Flint and realize this. It’s the type of situation that forces crime to become the easiest way of survival. It seems as if the downtown area is becoming more robust, but I’m wary of that kind of growth. It addresses a symptom of American capitalism, rather than the disease, while compartmentalizing the poverty and violence. But people are helping the downtown area to grow and the presence of colleges definitely make that area safer and more prone to economic growth. There are also community organizations that try their hardest to fight the rampant poverty, whether it be youth groups, homeless shelters, or other types of aid.
