Window Seat Press is a book publishing company founded by a mother and daughter who believe in the power of reading and contemplation as a way to better the world. With so much noise, speed, and distraction the two wondered how they might revive the joy of spending time with a good book. Doubling the challenge, quality books seemed harder to come by. What had happened to the kind of alive, ground-breaking literature they’d stumbled upon in years past? Books had become so well marketed and packaged that all the life had been sucked out of them. Further, as traditional book publishing was transformed by print-on-demand and new media, it became clear that a good deal of literary fiction was being laid aside in favor of more profitable genres. It was time, they realized, to remake the bookshelf. In 2016, the mother/daughter team began their task, hoping to bring the love of literature to many.
