Sold Out Publishing – Miss Read

Sold Out Publishing

Sold Out is a publishing house based in London, with the aim to diversify and culturally decolonize visual culture by publishing toolkits, materials, and essays from underrepresented perspectives within the media, visual arts, and design industry. The purpose is not simply to diversify or democratize the publishing and referencing system; it is to go further and question the inequalities and power dynamics in the spaces around us. Sold Out is a platform with an intersectional approach that facilitates multiple perspectives and aesthetics. It is based on plurality and does not claim to hold complete universal truth or knowledge. We are here to facilitate our authors' stories, theories, and designs. Since its inception in 2020, Sold Out has published 7 publications.
