Transmission Sites is a new cross-disciplinary pocket-book series, featuring extended critical texts on current concerns by key theorists or writers. Each book is devised and co-published with a partner educational or cultural institution.

The first book in the new series, Being a Border is a co-publication by Paper Visual Art and the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. This book was written following Nuit Banai’s participation in the Art in the Contemporary World (ACW) / IMMA Visiting Critic-in-Residence programme in 2014.

The predominantly text-based publications follow a common format (10.5 × 15 cm), soft-cover with custom yellow ink and a distinct foiled motif, interior extends to 52pp (40pp text with a 12pp colour signature).
