In an effort to make books available that are otherwise difficult to access, the initial group focuses on out-of-print offerings and features ten digitised catalogues highlighting the development of the Los Angeles art scene during the 1960s and 70s including Six painters and the object by Lawrence Alloway, Art in Los Angeles: seventeen artists in the sixties by Maurice Tuchman, and exhibition catalogues on Edward Kienholz and Robert Irwin.
