Racing Form Press

Racing Form Press makes beautiful books. In 2013, Thomas Jockin, created a new typeface, drawing inspiration from a one hundred year old Daily Racing Form, to be used specifically for our press. Our books are simple. They are minimally designed. They let the poems do the talking. We are dedicated to making books that bring together an elegant aesthetic and powerful, moving, and deeply human content.

Red Bird Chapbooks

Red Bird Chapbooks publishes chapbooks that introduce aspiring and inspiring writers and artists to a larger audience. We are a venue for new and existing writers to bring forth small collections of their work in an artistically appealing form. Producing new and exciting work to the public, in a form that enhances the content is challenging and exciting. We are always pleased when a manuscript is accepted and we can offer a writer another, alternative manner of publication more personal, immediate, and cooperative than the traditional publishing options.
