What is Badlands Unlimited?
Founded in 2010, Badlands Unlimited publishes e-books, paper books, and artist works in digital and print forms. Historical distinctions between books, files, and artworks are dissolving rapidly. We publish and produce new works by artists and writers that embody the spirit of this emerging dissolution. We make books in an expanded field.
What are your hours of operation?
We work on Mondays and Tuesdays. For all inquires you can reach us at email@example.com
Why e-books? Why not just publish paper books like normal people?
Because you can’t publish a .GIF on paper. Also because reading an e-book on e-readers like the iPad or Kindle means you only have to use one hand to read, freeing your other hand to do whatever you please.
What do you publish?
What we like and want to read and look at ourselves. We publish books that belong perfectly nowhere. We publish books that no one knew they wanted.
It seems that you mainly publish books on or about art or books by artists. Do you publish anything else?
Not really. We love artists, but we also love writers, poets, dictators, philosophers, and rappers.
Where can I buy your e-books?
You can buy our e-books through Apple iBooks (for the iPad, iPhone, and iTouch) and Amazon (for the Kindle).
Where can I buy your paper books?
You can buy our paper books at all fine independent bookshops. Our paper books are distributed by D.A.P. in the Americas and Koenig Books in Europe. If you cannot find a copy of our book at your local bookshop, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we’ll be happy to sell you a copy. We will also call your local bookshop to make sure they stock our books from now on.

Why is it called Badlands Unlimited?
