Innovative Fiction Press features innovative fiction from contemporary authors who are setting the trend for typographic design and narrative techniques that place the novel in the context of modern art and Surrealism. Our esthetic philosophy is that the novel should be allowed to develop from the standard trade paperback format into a more artistic book design which will enhance esthetic appreciation for fiction. With an emphasis on Internet Marketing, we hope to show that Innovative Fiction can be a successful genre within the American marketplace, so that novelists will be able to gain the recognition and sales statistics which they deserve.
Innovative Fiction: Avant Garde Novel Series
Avant garde book design for the innovative novel will enhance the esthetic pleasure of the reading experience making the book a collector's item to be appreciated as something new, so that a book can be displayed for its visual appeal. Too often we see non-descript book covers for fiction, and by placing the novel within the context of modern art we can accompany the literary text with an artistic image that matches the genre. There is a demand for innovative fiction that has not been fulfilled by the literary presses, who often select conventional writing without consideration for type font or page design. With the use of innovative book design the novel could become a sought after literary work, or book-as-art-object that can be taken more seriously as a significant contribution to American literature. These innovative novels become the pride of the literary press which will attract critical attention for the author, and a novel that is worth studying in the Literature department. Innovative Fiction Press hopes to fulfill this esthetic dream with the selection of innovative novels which will become American classics.
Surrealist Star Clustered Illuminations: Avant Garde Novel Series
Avant garde design for the Surrealist novel will place the book in the context of Surrealist art with innovative cover designs and color illustrations from Surrealist artists. This ideal began years ago with avant garde book design, and the Surrealist Star Clustered Illuminations: Avant Garde Novel Series hopes to publish novels that are developing the style and narrative techniques of the original Surrealist novels of André Breton, Michel Leiris, Joyce Mansour, and Salvador Dali. Surrealism in the 21st Century has become second and third generation Surrealism with a noticeable progression each decade, so that the novel can become ultramodern in the architextual sense with sleek typographic design which exemplifies Surrealist art. The trend in Surrealist writing is towards poetic density with subjective polysemantic nuance, and with the translation of novels from the French this is an opportunity for the English speaking novelists to show an understanding of the original style of Surrealism. The book arts have shown the posibility of using Surrealist materials for book covers with drawings or color photographs to accompany the work.
