Like artisan framemakers, Typecast’s mission is producing works of literature with purpose and care, with an eye for bringing the book forward to as wide an audience as possible. We like to think Typecast is the best of publishing’s past and future combined. Through our innovative business model, every production method is on the table, from old-school letterpress printing by hand to digital editions. And, because every publication is different, we believe each deserves its own set of rules.
Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Typecast is centrally located in the heart of the USA, which allows us a finger on the pulse of both rural and urban readers. Whether it’s an issue of The Lumberyard magazine inspired by the streets of New York, or a collection of stories inspired by trucking, we don’t shy away from bringing books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry together with readers wherever the work takes us.
We hope each time you visit our website you find it a welcoming, friendly experience. And we hope each product you choose for your own bookshelf provides you a lifetime of enjoyment.
If you would like to know more about what kinds of books we publish and when, we highly recommend you like us on facebook or twitter, where we regularly post calls for submission, discuss books we like, and sneak peek current projects.
Thanks for your visit!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“[Typecast Publishing] has blossomed into a bit of a grassroots mini media empire.”
––Erin Keane, NPR, June 2012
“The acumen of Typecast is the root of the uncovering and further enveloping and discovering of great American poetry.”
––Coldfront Magazine, March 2012
“[The Lumberyard] magazine’s combined editorial stance, design aesthetic, and letterpress sensibility make the thing so damned visceral and present that I am compelled to lock myself in a closet with a flashlight, cradle the thing in my arms, smell it, and lick its pages as much as I am compelled to read it, let alone write about reading it.”
––[PANK] magazine, Feb 2010
“[T]he most physically beautiful new journal I’ve seen this year. This magazine’s raw, jumpy, cerebral design makes it leap off the newsstand and into your arms. The Lumberyard looks like a magazine to watch.”
––Dwight Garner, NY Times, Sept 2009
