Moving Parts Press publishes handsome and innovative books, broadsides and prints under the direction of Felicia Rice. These editions of new literature, works in translation, and contemporary art explore the relationship of word and image, typography and the visual arts, the fine arts and popular culture.
Felicia Rice collaborates with visual artists, performing artists and writers to create book structures in which word and image meet and merge. She employs traditional typography and bookmaking methods in conjunction with digital technology, bringing the flexibility of screen-based design to the texture and history of the letterpress-printed page. She is pursuing the following area of inquiry:
LITERATURA CHICANA/LATINA SERIES Artists’ Books
This series explores the intersection of cultures, disciplines and book structures. This series of contemporary Chicano/Latino artists and writers in translation is issued in both limited and trade editions. Each book is the result of a close collaboration between writer, artist and book artist, Felicia Rice.
Moving Parts Press is not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time. Rice says, “As a small publisher, I have found that I can design, print and publish one limited edition book, and its related trade edition, every five years at best. I wish I had the ability to undertake more projects.”
