Exact Change is a small press that was founded in 1989 by Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang (of “Damon and Naomi“). They seem to have slowed down recently, but over the last 20+ years have kept in print stacks of otherwise impossible to find treasures of twentieth century literary Europe. Many Exact Change titles have returned to the land of “out of print”, and have become collectible in their scarcity. This Simic title from 1989 is also nicely collectible, but as a limited edition of 500, including 25 signed copies.

This Simic title is (maybe?) one of their first publications and unusual from them as it was a limited run. We’re happy to have snagged it as we’re fans of Damon & Naomi, Charles Simic, and Exact Change, not only for their output, but also because they are a hometown favorite.

Check out the Exact Change catalog¬†for more gems by folks like Raymond Roussel, Kurt Schwitters, Franz Kafka, Alfred Jarry, John Cage, Antonin Artaud…
