Badlands Unlimited

posted by Anna Chayasatit March 24, 2014

Publishing industry is growing at its fastest rate especially during the past two decades, facing once more as big a transformation as the introduction of the printing press almost half a millennium ago. An engaging experience that digital media has to offer has changed our reading habits, one of the reasons why publishers are now trying to incorporate themselves in this burgeoning digital scene. Founded in 2010, Badlands Unlimited publish both digital and print publications, offering worldwide readers chances to enjoy groundbreaking books in a broad range of topics and genres.

Based in New York, Badlands Unlimited have grown in conjunction with the growing array of digital devices whilst aesthetic and editorial values as well as ethical standards still lie at the core of the company’s principles. They position themselves as an experimental platform for artists and writers to publish innovative contents via publications with emphases on contemporary art and culture.

Quirky, unconventional titles include an English translation of essays by Saddam Hussein called ‘On Democracy’, a series of unpublished conversations with Marcel Duchamp by Calvin Tomkins, a New Yorker’s art critic, and ‘Think Like Clouds’, a book of drawings by art historian, critic and curator Hans-Ulrich Obrist, also known as a co-director of the prestigious Serpentine Gallery.

Their ebooks are available for purchase via Apple iBooks and Amazon, whereas paper books can be found in select bookshops across the U.S. and Europe. What’s more, some titles have free pdf editions and you can acquire them directly from their website.
