illustrator, jewellery maker and all round creative gal Kaye Blegvad just launched a, shall we say, passion project in the form of Horizontal Press, a small pornographic press based in Brooklyn. you can peruse a selection of tongue-in-cheek, and cheeky, Tijuana Bibles and prints in their online shop. perfect for the ‘discerning horndog’. i asked Kaye a bit about how Horizontal Press came to be.

Tijuana Bibles have a kind of cult appreciation in the comics world, as forerunners to zines and underground comics, and they’re such a satisfying format – seemed like a good choice to recreate it. This project is partly an excuse to work with a ton of wonderful illustrators and comics artists, partly an excuse to make some lovely printed objects. And really, if we’re honest, almost entirely an excuse to talk about, compose puns about, and make work about… sex. Some funny, some dark, some celebratory, some genuinely sexy.
