Independent Book Publisher
Levellers Press, formed by the worker-owners of Collective Copies in 2009, comes from a completely different direction to a publishing world in flux. They have witnessed a revolution in imaging technology from the first analog color copiers, to Xerox Docutechs in the 1990s, to today's 2400 dpi Xerox Docucolors printing on sheets as large as 13 x 19 inches. Unwieldy graphic files and slow computer processing have given way to lean Adobe Acrobat documents, high speed scanners and speedier RIPs (rasterized image processing).
Their core business allows them to own this new technology, including the bindery equipment that completes a high quality print-on-demand publication. They find ourselves imbedded in the rich political and cultural environment of Western Massachusetts where many worthy manuscripts go unpublished. As Levellers Press they hope to provide a ready vehicle for authors whether they publish their work or help in a self-publishing effort. They have worked successfully with authors and publishers all over the U. S. and welcome all inquiries.
