Surcee Press is fundraising for its first hand-bound book of art and literature entitled "A New Guide to Charleston."

About this project

We at Surcee Press are in the process of creating our first book, "A New Guide to Charleston," which will serve as a contemporary directory of local, site-specific art and literature. We are binding each book by hand in an attempt to encase the work we've received as thoughtfully as it has been made. This diverse, collaborative effort intends to be a city-wide time capsule of how the residents of Charleston perceive and are influenced by their home in one of America's most storied locales. In addition to pointing readers towards Charleston's rich community of artists, "A New Guide to Charleston" will also offer a creative map of inspiring spaces in our hometown. Any donations we receive here will fund the production process of our book, including digital press color printing, all binding materials, high quality paper stock, and the peace of mind that we will make as many of these books as our nimble hands can take!
