Independent Publishers


We've put together a few of our favourite books from independent publishers—scroll down and take a look!


This is just the tip of the iceberg; the independent publishing scene is a broad, many-splendored landscape where so many books are deserving of attention. But it’s also one of the areas of the book industry that’s hardest hit by the economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. These are often publishers that take risks, that discover writers and subjects, and give voice to those who often go unheard; they’re often fuelled by innovation, passion, grit and a loyal community—and, if nothing else, they publish great books without necessarily having a big publicity budget. We couldn't do without independent publishers (and definitely don't want to). Go indies!
