Altlas Press publishes classics from the “anti-tradition”, by which they intend a somewhat less crabbed and liverish version of the avant-gardes of the last 150 years. They have published important texts from many of the great unclassifiables (for example, Georges Bataille, Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Carlo Emilio Gadda, Hans Henny Jahnn, Alfred Jarry, Oskar Panizza, Raymond Roussel, Erik Satie, Urmuz &c.) and works by artists and writers associated with German Romanticism, French Symbolism and Decadents, German Expressionism, International Dada, Surrealism, Le Grand Jeu, the Vienna Group, Vienna Actionism, Situationism, the Collège de ’Pataphysique, Nouveau Réalisme, Fluxus, Gruppo 63 and the Oulipo.
