Mad Gleam Press

Bilingual independent press based in New York City and Paris. It is comprised of Brian Sheffield, Craig Kite, Margaux Taleux and Claire Durand-Gasselin. Mad Gleam Press was created to show the constant dialogue that exists between the visual and literary arts. We want to highlight the conjoined strengths of text and image by publishing visual poetic pieces, visual poems, dialogues on arts and ideas between artists of the two media, and excerpts of artist books. We also want to celebrate and speak to the infrastructure of the physical communities that come together around small press publications. We hope to offer a space for visual and literary artists to compliment each other’s work and to make new connections across mediums, genres and cultures.

We publish books, chapbooks, and POST(blank) magazine, a bilingual word-art mook.

We also run Mad Gleam Books&Records, a small bookshop located in Brooklyn, NY.

Lexique Feministo-Abréviatif [fr]


Contributor based blog. This was an attempt to create a secret language for women and girls, to share their experiences about men together. The tone is funny, unapologetic and witty, pretty romantic, and trashy sometimes.
