New Michigan Press is the publisher for the DIAGRAM series of print anthologies. Check them out and buy them below (all of them except for 10 of DIAGRAMs are available from Amazon and can be ordered in almost any bookstore via Baker & Taylor, also).

Anthologies are listed in reverse chronological order.

20 of DIAGRAMs

Our 20th anniversary anthology is a tarot deck: an exquisite literary object and a usable tarot deck usable for divination. As with our 10th anniversary poker deck, our contributors randomly selected cards and created new works in the spirit of the cards they drew. Unlike most of our anthologies, this features all new work and celebrates 20 damn years of publishing DIAGRAM, one of the oldest (and best we daresay) literary journals around.

The 20th anniversary deck features 78 tarot-sized (2.75" x 4.75") cards in the four suits (wands, swords, cups, pentacles) and the major arcana in a custom box.

10 of DIAGRAMs

(10th anniversary special print issue which is also a deck of cards)

(note: this is a limited edition, print run of 1000)

(click above for larger size)

10 of DIAGRAMs, an anthology celebrating ten years of this little kickass magazine, takes the form of a full deck of cards (poker-size). It is playable, an actual deck of cards. It is also readable, a special issue of DIAGRAM. It includes, as you may imagine, a number of new diagrams.

We asked former contributors and other favorite writer-types to pick a card, any card, and to write or draw or whatever a piece for that card. The piece--prose or poem or sometimes both--would have to indicate the suit and rank of the card, so the deck is actually usable for poker, euchre, old maid, etc.. It is also suitable for framing, gifting, and reading. Well, the fonts are occasionally a little small, as you may imagine. Plus there are a bunch of awesome new diagrams, as you might imagine.

Pictured at left is the (top) box front, (middle) box back, and (bottom) card back.

The writers who wrote pieces for us are Stephanie Anderson, Sarah Blackman, Jenny Boully, Jason Bredle, Lucy Corin, John D'Agata, Brian Evenson, Tom Fleischmann, Albert Goldbarth, Heidi Gotz, Caitlin Horrocks, Melanie Jordan, Paul La Farge, Dolly Laninga, Sean Lovelace, Barbara Maloutas, Ben Marcus, Michael Martone, Philip Metres, Ander Monson, Manuel Muñoz, Lia Purpura, Emma Ramey, Aurelie Sheehan, Michael Sheehan, Katie Jean Shinkle, Lauren Goodwin Slaughter, Bruce Smith, Nicole Walker, Kellie Wells, Joshua Marie Wilkinson, Mark Yakich, Jake Adam York, and Charles Yu.

(Some from) DIAGRAM

(selections from issues 1.1-2.6 + many bonus diagrams)

(Some from) DIAGRAM: a Print Anthology features selections from our first two years plus much more. We love our online presence, but there is something about having the book, the fact of the thing, artifact, in front of you and thumbing through its pages. The art is crisper, more detailed, larger. The texts are even more satisfying. Plus you can rip out the pages of the pieces you just don't like. Smear the margins with your Dorito-stained or blood-stained fingers, depending whether you come from lunch or murder.
