About:
The Chicago Underground Library is a project that aims to
create an archive of independently published and small press
works in Chicago. Through a searchable online archive and
eventually a physical space, it will open new opportunities
for research, inspiration, education, and collaboration
among those in and outside of the publishing community. By
putting fiction, critical journals, zines, poetry, comics,
political pamphlets, and art books side by side, CUL hopes
to bridge the gaps resultant from stratification along the
lines of content, production value, and commercial
viability.

To be added to our news and updates list, ask a question,
make a comment, send baked goods, or offer words of
encouragement, please email info@underground-library.org.

Sincerely,
Nell Taylor & Emerson Dameron
