“Amicus protectio fortis”
“Strong protection by friends”

New Laconic works across genres to present contemporary findings in the form of books, novels, pamphlets, talks and sculptural events. We offer a space for research, serious irreverence, and inquisitive cross-disciplinary voices.

Drawing on our extensive shared history in the art and design fields, we treat each publication as a fresh experiment in design and bookmaking.
