About Alleged Press:

Hello and welcome to Alleged Press. This venture is a wonderful collaboration between myself, Italian publisher Damiani Editore and an amazing group of creative hearts and minds. The original Alleged Press actually started over ten years ago when I began self-publishing small photocopied artist fanzines in very limited quantities. Although times have changed, surprisingly, the objective today remains at its heart very much the same. Our mission now is to create a unique series of wonderful monographs, beautifully designed and printed, which spotlight the works of young artists, graphic designers, photographers and filmmakers who we believe reflect the tempo of the times. It is our hope that this amazing series will entice and inspire those interested in art and design, while providing a valuable resource for students and researchers.
