Calque Press - A small and occasional press

support - our mission, donate to Calque

At Calque we publish small editions of poetry, illustrated short fiction, single-author anthologies, novels and multi-author anthologies, from new writing to translation and rediscoveries. We are developing two more collections, Calque Pamphlets and Calque Cartonera. We are extremely keen on incorporating questions of crafting, upcycling and book art into the publishing process. Publishing limited editions help us be kind to the environment. Our publishing model is sustainable and stresses building a community over growth. We use FSC certified paper.

If the above resonates, or if you would like to contribute with our ongoing mission, please do buy our books and merch. That helps us directly. We have also pledged to donate part of our profit to a number of causes. Our forthcoming edition of Parting Song is a project made in partnership with Crude Accountability's ongoing human rights Prove they are alive! campaign. We have committed to plant one tree for every copy sold of An Invite to Eternity: Tales of Nature Disrupted.
