SPRINT—Independent Publishers & Artists' Books Salon  |  12th edition  |  Milano

23–24 November 2024


Deadline → 1st August

We recently discovered that our Instagram profile @sprintmilano was hacked and since then we are tenaciously working to get it restored soon.

In this particular climate, we are asking anyone who cares about the project to spread the word about the SMABF24 Open-Call and resonate it on any real or digital dimension.

We share the safe permanent link containing a short animation that can be used for multiple stories, remembering to always add the button with the direct link to the Open-Call.

We thank any creature who wants to support us in making the landscape of independent and self-publishing more and more accessible and plural.

Since 2013 SPRINT is a non–profit artist–led platform devoted to investigate – in a sustainable and intersectional gaze – the multiple ways in which contents, supports and languages emerge in independent and artist publishing, from zines to books to magazine and viceversa to warp formats with attitude. SPRINT is composed by an annual Art Book Fair & Public Program, a scattered series of Warm-Up episodes, Spin-Off adventures, The Riso Club Printing Lab. [soon] and a growing Archive with the collaboration in this years among others of:
