Avalon Press is the culmination of parallel loves: books and reading! First blush, that seems redundant: For books are about reading! That which should be read and the means to read it. In other words - printing and writing!

We are not a printing press: But we do love the "black art" in all its forms, and we do love to read good stuff!

Our commitment is to our authors and readers. To design and produce books that you will want to keep with you to read: On The Bus, At The Beach, In The Park, On The Nightstand. And that comes down to quality: Quality of Print, Quality of Content. We will not spend our precious publishing coin gilt-wrapping dross to look like gold! That alchemy is best left to those that have more coin!

Our aim is to bring to you readable and enjoyable books.
