Welcome to Chatwin Books. We are a new publisher of print and digital books in a wide range of topics, run by a team with many decades of experience in all aspects of the book business.

At the heart of who we are, and what we do, is working with authors to support their craft, and their entire body of work, throughout the publication process. Using our experience and drive to help our authors create great books is the surest way our team can ensure a great experience for our readers.

In addition to the work we do for our own books, we do editorial, design, author branding, marketing, and other work on a contract basis for other publishers and authors. We also distribute books from other publishers, both print and digital.

About

 

Welcome to Chatwin Books, publishers of fine books.

We are a nimble team based in Seattle, with decades of experience in the book business. We specialize in literary fiction, poetry, fine art and photography books, with a smattering of eclectic titles we believe in. Shop our titles here.

For Authors: At the heart of what we do, is close work with you the author to support your craft, and your entire body of work, throughout the publication process. We look beyond the title at hand to create a holistic publishing approach that serves the author, taking into account your goals, readership, and style of communication to bring you to the next level in your career. We work with both authors and artists to create books of exceptional quality and appeal.

For Booksellers: Chatwin was co-founded by the owner of an ABA-member Indie bookstore, Phil Bevis of Arundel Books in Seattle. Our discounts and policies on direct orders are intended to motivate and support independent bookstores to carry our books, with an economically sustainable model. Please see our Libraries & Booksellers page for tailored ordering information.

Chatwin Books is committed to environmental and social justice in our manufacturing and sourcing

We print exclusively in North America, and strongly prefer employee-owned coops when choosing print vendors. We choose recycled content whenever possible, and strive to source production close to our PNW office, to minimize emissions in transport. 

Winter 2018–2019 updates

Recent releases and forthcoming titles include the much-anticipated “Book Collecting Now” (01 May), which addresses the new, young and increasingly female world of book collectors; the third in our Chatwin Collected Poets series, “Last of the Outsiders” (15 June) which is vol. 1 of Jack Grapes’ collected poems; and the just-released children’s book “The Man With Bees in His Beard” (01 February), a gentle, meditative sojourn by writer-illustrator Brian Dempsey, whose gorgeous, zen-like pencil illustrations bring the pages to life.
