Specific Ideas (Kansas City, USA)

Specific Ideas is a small, independent publishing house that pursues a holistic creative process, providing care and consideration to the concept, design, typography, and production of each publication.

We aim to operate at the intersection(s) of graphic design and publishing, making work in close collaboration with artists, writers, musicians, and other fine folk, for print, screen, and space. A focus of the press’s publishing output is artist books and editions because they are an especially accessible, distributable medium for ideas and an effective means for amplifying voices that are less heard. Formerly known as NOS Press, Specific Ideas was founded in 2018 in Kansas City, MO.
