Indie Publisher of the Day: Comma Press
We’re very conscious that, whilst this splintered world we’re living in threatens and challenges ALL of the businesses in our bookish eco-system, many of the indie publishers we love so much (and their authors) will be finding it particularly tough without shop-floors like ours open to display their books.
So, each day for the forseeable future, we’re going to post a list featuring one of our favourite independent publishers with a mix of some of their latest titles that might not be getting the attention they deserve and some of what we regard as their “greatest hits”!
First up, it’s Comma Press, a not-for-profit publisher based in Manchester whose books are the perfect way to access and experience a diverse range of cultures without leaving your isolation zone.
