Asparagus Press is a small scale and collaborative publisher, specialising in artist writing and thematic projects.

There is no set form or format for titles; the press is underpinned by a commitment to matching form and content, whether this is a poster, a zine, an oversized hardback, or pulp paperback. Asparagus specialises in artist interviews and artist writing and sporadically publishes Asparagus Zine.

Asparagus Zine is a short run, loose leaf zine that bunches things together. Centring on a single theme, each issue cuts a path through that topic with every featured artwork or artist occupying an autonomous, folded insert.
