Welcome to FoldPress


FoldPress started life as the publishing arm of Fold - an artist-led organisation that aims to provide and promote access to contemporary art in the rural environment.

FoldPress publications underpined Fold's core values and supported its aims through speading the word in print. All publications are devised, researched, designed and edited by artists and as such communicate an artist's approach to publishing.


FoldPress is now an independent publisher, although still retaining its original values of artist-designed publications and furthering the understanding of rural contemporary art.
