FIRST EDITION of this descriptive bibliography of the first twenty years of the Antinomian Press. Printed letterpress by Patrick Reagh in an edition of 500 copies. The Antinomian Press was established by Ben Kinmont in 1996 to print and distribute books and ephemera in support of project art. To date, there have been more than 150 items published. Whether printed in strangers' homes, on the street, in museums, or during various collaborations with students, each item is listed in terms of its format, pagination, and edition size as well as a brief explanation of its content and point of distribution. The publications described cover a range of subjects such as the work of the artist Lee Lozano (1930-1999); ethics in project art practices; the history of artists' street actions; and the fragility of the art discourse outside of institutional art spaces. On the preliminary pages Kinmont discusses 17th-century English antinomianism; the origin of the Press; and his selection of the engravings and ornaments that illustrate the bibliography, all of which come from his personal collection of 17th-century English radical literature. At the end is appended a list of various multiples and special editions Kinmont has produced outside of the Antinomian Press.
