Ancient Tower Press welcomes a business relationship with any retail bookstore that resonates with the principles of Fair Trade Publishing. Beyond the bottom line – which is of course important to any business – independent publishers and independent bookstores share a love of books for their own sake. Fair Trade Publishing principles attempt to level the playing field so that a love of books can at least compete with the bottom line as the motivation for publishing.
Unlike large commercial chains and corporate publishers, independents at the supply end of the book trade have a common interest in making quality books available to their customers – not just commercial best sellers, but books of special interest and value, that have something important to say, that are capable of changing the culture in which we live, and that are at the cutting edge of the fields in which they circulate. Independent publishers such as Ancient Tower Press are willing to live at the cutting edge of their field, and provide books of exceptional value, while Fair Trade Publishing practices make it economically feasible for them to do so.
Ancient Tower Press realizes that it is easier and more convenient for you to do one-stop shopping with the wholesale distributor of your choice. But by ordering your books directly from the publisher, you support an environment within the book trade that is conducive to creating the kinds of books that you yourself would most likely prefer to read.
