Bandrolsüz – meaning without a tax certificate – is a collective of 5 independent publication houses Bakkal Press, folio, Onagöre, REC Collective and Too Many Books who got together in February 2011.
Bandrolsüz aims to create possibilities for sale and distribution of artists’ books and reproductions. During the times when electronic publications and magazines start to take over the printed medium, Bandrolsuz creates a space, away from large distribution companies and chain bookstores, where the book is considered as a location and a channel.
Bandrolsüz draws attention to alternative productions through regular sale events, workshops and talks at different venues both in Istanbul and internationally.
