Empty Purse Publications started as an artist collaboration / act of friendship in New York City circa 2007. Each issue explores a recent topic of interest, usually something we found in the kitchen or near-there, and is printed on a thematically relevant medium. In defiance of the anachronism of print publishing, we ask for more than readership from our audience – physical engagement with the work. In some cases, you may have to wash and iron the issue; in others, you will remove sections of a book and return it to us with your responses.
