ALTERNATIVE ORGANS is an online resource for alternative publishing and book art projects presented by Luminous Books | Owl Cave in conjunction with the Luminous Books residency at UNIT/PITT Projects. .

Taking its name from a publication within The Whole Earth Catalog, Alternative Organs draws on the catalog’s original aims to facilitate, reflect and build communities through independent education; providing access to tools.

A growing index of practical resources, physical spaces, projects and initiatives for alternative thinking around the book, making and distribution, Alternative Organs will act as a library from which things can be borrowed and contributed.

An ongoing collaboration between Owl Cave, San Francisco & Luminous Books, London generated from conversations around gathering and interpreting a collection for the temporary bookshop at Unit/Pitt Projects.


ALTERNATIVE ORGANS recent additions:

Hato Press / Scrivener’s Monthly / Slide Shows /

The Book Affair / Banner Repeater /

X Marks the Bökship /  Section 7 Books /
