Publishing Philosophy


The official librarian of Chini lamasery in Kansu is shown beside the shelves containing the printing blocks of the sacred Kandjur and Tandjur, Tibetan Buddhist texts.  These blocks are more than 500 years old, which proves  the lamas had no concept of "out of print".   45 monks spent six  months printing a complete set of these rare books for the American Library of Congress.  It took another year for the books to reach the USA.

We work a little faster than that!

We are proud to present this collection of superb travel writing.  We plan to add to our list of titles, working with living authors to help them preserve their literary legacy.
