Bulletins of The Serving Library
 

Bulletins of The Serving Library is a composite printed / electronic publication from the duo Stuart Bailey and David Reinfurt, that follows a direct line from Dot Dot Dot, the semi-annual journal founded in 2000 and published by Dexter Sinister. Across the arts and into philosophy, the “bulletins” that make up each issue are first published online as PDFs at www.servinglibrary.org over a six-month period, then assembled, printed and distributed separately in Europe (by Sternberg Press) and in the U.S.A. (by Dexter Sinister). Each collection makes up a semester's worth of loosely-themed material, with its constituent PDFs grouped together on the website.
