Why Paulownia Press?

The Paulownia tree is native to East Asia and it produces beautiful, strong and reliable wood that lasts and lasts. Because many of our books have aspects of Japan and East Asia as their subject matter, and we aim to publish books whose impact will last and last, we wanted to have a name that is evocative of that region and those values.

Please take some time to look around our site and, if there is anything we can do for you as an author or reader, please get in touch right away!

What sets us apart?

  • We believe in publishing work that has a positive and lasting impact.
  • We believe in rewarding authors with a fair share of the proceeds from their work.
