Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (or CASL) was passed in December of 2010 and will be enforced as of the first of this month. Designed to protect from unwanted emails, the law prohibits businesses from sending unsolicited messages. The act requires explicit consent from a recipient and the fines for breaking the law are reportedly between one and ten million dollars. 
The sledgehammer effect is that all galleries have been forced to send out pleading messages inviting those on their current mailing list to confirm their interest. Based on social media complaints, it is not uncommon to lose 60% of your database in the process. 
Despite waiting until (literally) the last minute (after people had been inundated for weeks with other requests) The Nothing Else Press hasn’t been quite that unlucky, but we have lost more than we hoped to. We figured our list was maybe padded by 20% or so (people who might’ve been interested in a particular artist we published, but probably not any of the others, for example) but we lost almost twice that number. 
So I thought I would appeal to Tumblr, and offer a raffle prize to boot. The Nothing Else Press publishes on average a couple of multiples or editions a year. We have published works by Jonathan Monk, David Shrigley, Alex Snukal, Paul Butler, Ken Nicol, Micah Lexier, Karen Azoulay, Colleen Savage, Michael Dumontier, Neil Farber, Kelly Mark and Vanessa Maltese. Forthcoming projects include Jon Sasaki, Cary Leibowitz, Jimmy Limit, Lee Ranaldo and Maurizio Nannucci. You will never receive more than 5 or 6 messages from us a year. 
If you are interested in being notified about projects as they are released, or maybe events (we’re going to the London Art Book Fair this September, for example) please send a message to  nothingelsepress@rogers.com with “Subscribe” in the heading. 
From the messages received we’ll draw one name to receive a copy of the Jonathan Monk Picture Postcard Posted From Postbox Pictured, as pictured above. (For more information about the series, click here.)
Thanks.

Vanessa MalteseOrnament SwatchToronto, Canada: Nothing Else Press, 201418.2 x 6 x 4 cm (closed), 1.8 x 4 x 55.5 cm (extended)Edition of 15 $550.00 CDN
Drawing on motifs that have cycled through her recent body of work, Maltese likens this hinged sculptural edition to “samples you might flip through if you were interested in ginger-breading the roof of your house or something. It’s reminiscent of a kids toy, which I am into, as it is a rather useless object at the end of the day.”

Kelly MarkFrankfurter 5Inkjet on archival paper30.5” x 31” Signed & numbered edition of 20$350.00
The Nothing Else Press is pleased to announce a new edition by Kelly Mark. Frankfurter 5 is the first available print edition of the artist’s ongoing series of works made entirely with dry transfer rub-on letters and symbols.  The Letraset drawings began in 2001 and have remained at the centre of Mark’s practice, evolving from intimate sized compositions to sprawling works, with one (recently purchased by the National Gallery of Canada), being over thirty-three feet long.
The results are complex renderings of text as image which evoke Concrete poetry, Constructivism, Dada, Futurism, imaginary landscapes and machinery.

Alex Snukal
Me and Julio Down by Diter’s Dung Hole 
Toronto, Canada: Nothing Else Press, 2009
altered postcard, 4” x 6”
Edition of 25
$50.00 CAD

Snukal responds to a postcard edition originally created by Yoko Ono in 1971and altered by Diter Rot the following year. Making literal a quote from a Julio Cortázar novel that invokes a euphoric epiphany as equivocal to pushing a pebble through one’s asshole, Snukal one-up’s Diter with a third iteration.

The text reads:

"…look at the world through the eye of your asshole and you’ll see patterns pretty as can be, the pebble had to pass through the eye of your asshole…"

From Hopscotch, Julio Cortázar, 1966
