All of our publications (including the DVD format films) are distributed internationally by Cornerhouse Publications (UK). Contact them directly via: publications [at] cornerhouse [dot] org / +44 161 212 3466 / 2 Tony Wilson Place, First Street, Manchester, M15 4FN..

You can view and buy our publications directly online via the Cornerhouse catalogue.

If the publication that you’re looking for isn’t listed on their catalogue it may be because many of our publications are now, sadly out of print. Archive copies are kept by the imprint for exhibition and research purposes. Contact simon [at] informationasmaterial [dot] org with full details about your project if you’re looking for a copy of one of our oop publications.

However, Cornerhouse is a central distributor for lots of specialist bookstores and libraries; plus, since iam’s inception our books have be bought in consignment for re-sale by specialist stores around the world. Contact any of the stockists listed below if it’s cheaper or easier for you — some of them will have remaining copies of oop books.
