Errant Press is an independent effort to create, print, and distribute books that challenge the traditional form and reading dynamics. It's run by Mexican artists Alan Sobrino (Mexico City, 1986) and Tania Chaidez Ibarra (Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico, 1991), based in Los Angeles, CA.

Instead of bringing art into the book form, we try to free words from the codex form. Our explorations have led us to intervene traditional reading dynamics, creating books meant to be read collaboratively. Adopt conceptual practices, making books intended to be stolen. Or challenge the book form using different objects as containers for our texts.

Aside from our publishing practice, we translate, support, and distribute a selection of Latin American book artists that share our views. We work with book artists from Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Mexico in an effort to amplify their voices and reach broader audiences.

A book can also exist as an autonomous and self-sufficient form, including perhaps a text that emphasizes that form, a text that is an organic part of that form: here begins the new art of making books. (Ulises Carrion)
