OUTLET Fine Art is pleased to present ISSUE 001: EXPENSIVE POETRY, the first issue of Postprint Magazine, a space for poetry that lives beyond the printed page, IRL. The first issue dilates the concept of a printed periodical of poetry wide enough to take in also color, form, and the systems of commerce that hold them. By collapsing the limits of the printed page, so too, the distinction between reading and seeing may also be collapsed, allowing for the fulfillment of a new poetics. The process of perception every artist in this issue carries us through, from place to place in the gallery, describes an answer to the question: if poetry is a process of perception, what is the limit of poetry, if not words? 

By reforming old notions of publication and its platforms, by translating them to a more 3d space, Postprint Magazine stands as a vivid response to the life and the limits of the printed page.
