We’re excited to be working with a new distributor. Asterism is a Seattle-based company founded in 2021 by Joshua Rothes of Sublunary Editions, as a small co-operative of presses offering direct-to-trade distribution for member presses. Outgrowing their initial model, Asterism Books re-launched in February of 2023 as a partnership between Joshua Rothes and Phil Bevis, co-publisher of Chatwin Books and the proprietor of Arundel Books, with a warehouse, fulfillment center, and headquarters in the Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle.

You’ll likely hear the Asterism name a lot lately as many small presses abandoned by the sudden closure of Small Press Distribution have been flocking there. Many of our personal faves like 11:11, Autofocus, Calamari, Hanuman Editions, Split/Lip Press, and so many others also make their distribution home with them. If you’re a bookstore, you can learn more about how they work here.

Along with our partnership with Ingram, we’re looking forward to working with Asterism.
