Throwback Books - Fiction (Go to Fiction)

Throwback Books is committed to finding works that focus on the aesthetic of the words as much as-- or even moreso --than the story / character / plot of the piece. We take those works and match them to a typewriter that fits their work in concept or design, then we handmake each book for distribution. In the past, we have stitched bindings or done transparent overlays on the cover to offset text and illustration. We have printed fragmented pages or poetry on pages of vellum folded over newsprint paper. We have raised the appearance of a book to that of a Bible with purple-lace bookmark and gold-lettered cover, then we stained it with a beer bottle drink ring.


We are hoping to find people who send us coloring books or choose-your-own-adventures. We are hoping for books that demand a tactile change to the page--- something marred or on alternate surfaces. Plenty of great writing will stand alone and will not need a publisher like ours. We are looking for a collaboration to make it all come together with a gestalt it wouldn't have had with another publisher.

Whatever brings out the essence of the writing or writer, we will venture to make it happen in these perfect-bound books.
