At Lorimer Press we are committed to making beautiful books that engage the reader and celebrate the writer. Our objective is to bring writers and readers together. We select a few exceptional manuscripts for publication each year and champion those books and authors through careful edit, design and production.
Call us old-fashioned, we still thrill to the feel of a printed book in our hands, the crack of a spine, the smell of ink on the page. Dealing with all the little details that make a book something to treasure is why we get up in the morning! We enjoy the inner-workings of what can make a good book a gorgeous book — end pages, headbands, fonts, paper selection, binding materials. And when it comes to page design, don’t get us started on things like white space, running heads or the placement of folio numbers. We excel at combining type and images in ways that surprise and delight the reader.
Please keep us in mind when you have a manuscript that deserves a stunning layout.
