Ulysses PressNamed for five out of the last eight years as one of Publishers Weekly’s ten “fastest-growing small publishers,” Ulysses Press is reinventing the relationship between reader, author and publisher.
Beyond market-driven, Ulysses Press focuses on highly targeted niche groups that aren’t being offered the books they want by the big corporate-owned New York houses.
As pop culture changes at the speed of the Internet, books have a powerful role to play in the interconnected world. But no new media has ever eliminated an existing media form. They force change, and with change comes opportunity. That is why our printed books work hand in hand with e-book and online versions of their content.
They have such a huge variety of books available, you are sure to find just the book you are looking for! I found 3 right away that I just had to have, one for me, one for my best friend, and one for my husband.
They have so many genres of books to choose from such as: Crafts & Hobbies (my favorite), coloring, pop culture, Gifty Grabs and Dr Seuss just to name a few. You can see their full listing of books in their catalog.
But here are the books I got.
