    I am requesting recommendations for short-run book printers that are receptive to printing books with material that relates to Thelema. The production of perfect bound books is a must, but it would also be good to have the option of producing hardbacks as well. Being based in the U.S., it would be preferable that any suggested businesses have offices here.

    Thanks.

    Here in the UK I almost always use a particular short-run specialist printers, Antony Rowe Ltd. They produce paperback as well as hardback, perfect-bound as well as sewn-bound. I have used them since 1996. I don’t think they have a branch in the USA, though they clearly have a partner company over there since they have offered to arrange for a portion of my runs to be printed and bound over there, thus obviating the cost of shipping to the USA. Thus they have published the Starfire, the books by Kenneth Grant, Donald Tyson’s Liber Lilith, and the latest title of our by Spare. If you’d like me to find out who their partner company is in the USA, PM me and I’ll find out from my production manager at Rowe.

    There will be short-run specialists in the USA offering all the above options, and I doubt that they will be bothered by the material they are printing so long as it is not legally actionable. A Google search on short-run printers in the State in which you live should give you a few alternatives from which to choose.

    Best wishes,

    Michael.

    I have Googled the subject, but the choices are overwhelming; my wish is to avoid the DIY markets that are intent on squeezing every dollar out of the customer in exchange for a so-so product. I have the means to design the cover and typeset the text, I just need the services of a legitimate printing company as opposed to a company that farms out the work for a markup.

    Eamonn Loughran makes marvelous limited edition runs, both publicly and privately with his Hell Fire Book Club. His cloth-bound editions are actually reasonably priced, but he is in the UK. I don’t trust the DIY publishers. I see too many errors in their works; proof-reading seems to be a dying art in the U.S.A.; I point you to last year’s limited edition of “Moonchild” as a prime example of such travesties.

    It’s not just the U.S.A., Walter. It seems to be the commercial trend to do as little editing as possible; sometimes even a spellchecker seems too much effort.

    Best wishes,

    Michael.

    Oh yes, it’s still in existence! I don’t think he does Paypal any more. Now he has all of his stuff listed on Amazon UK and you buy it from there.
