bricks and indies

November 20, 2016

Chin Music Press, Seattle

“Why Indie Presses Are Opening Bookstores” was published in LitHub back in June, but we’re big fans of independent bookstores, so we thought we’d give it a mention. As the title suggests, the article talks about the recent opening of bricks-and-mortar bookstores by independent presses. Not mentioned in the article is Seattle’s Chin Music Press and one of the originals, City Lights Books in San Francisco.

For more on this encouraging topic, see articles on Milkweed Books (Minneapolis) and Pages (the first Arabic-language bookstore in Istanbul). A twist on this approach is POST, a bookstore in Tokyo that offers titles from one publishing house at a time (more here).
