Loose Leaf

So Loose Leaf isn't technically a book, but I like it too much to not mention it.

Loose Leaf is a collaborative effort curated in San Francisco. The first edition is San Francisco focused, with work by artists who live in the area or produce work inspired by the area. First issue contributors include Jeff Canham, Dave Eggers, Dwight Eschliman, Mark Giglio, Jake Longstreth, Michelle McCarron, Richard Misrach, Louisa Parris and Andrew Zuckerman.

The first issue has 10 sheets and comes with push pins so Loose Leaf can be experienced instead of just stored away. And on the back of each sheet, the artists lists what hangs on their walls.

I didn't realize how large Loose Leaf was until I watched the video below:

Something else I appreciate about Loose Leaf is the dedication to keeping things local. The paper and printer partners are both Bay Area based.
