About Us

Litwin Books is an independent academic publisher of books about media, communication and the cultural record. We are interdisciplinary in scope and intention, and gather together works from a range of disciplines, including media studies, communication studies, cultural studies, information studies, philosophy of technology, archival studies, communications history, history of archives and libraries, and related fields. Our independence from larger institutions gives us the freedom to offer critical perspectives that cut against the grain, as well as occasionally to give a scholar free rein with a work that is outside his or her usual publishing stream.

With our Library Juice Press imprint we follow the same philosophy, publishing books that examine theoretical and practical issues in librarianship from a critical perspective, for an audience of professional librarians and students of library science.

Auslander & Fox is our imprint for general readers, featuring books characterized by originality, wit, and perspective.

We began publishing books in 2006, in Duluth, Minnesota. We are currently located in Sacramento, California. You can read about our origins here.

We are accepting book proposals and manuscripts.

Our books are printed on acid-free paper.
