Hesse Press

Los Angeles, CA

A Los Angeles-based publishing house founded by artists Clare Kelly and John Wiese, Hesse Press grew out of conversations between Kelly and Wiese about the need for tangible financial and logistical support for artists in Los Angeles. 


The Press achieves its goal by providing partners with financial support through a micro-granting system, as well as strategic and creative support for the design and publication of art books. 


Hesse Press places equal emphasis on the needs of their artists, audience, and community at large in the context of affordable and thoughtfully designed books.
