A free contemporary broadsheet featuring writing, art, and design, FULL BLEDE is independently published by Sacha Baumann.

The masthead is a nod to the newspaper terms “full bleed” (edge-to-edge printing) and “lede” (the introductory section of a news story that entices the reader to keep reading). Combined, FULL BLEDE expresses the newspaper’s intent to publish content that is intriguing, unadulterated, and beyond the edge of standardized borders of convention.

Each issue features collaborators expounding upon a theme and launches in conjunction with an opening or closing reception at a selected Los Angeles gallery.
