The crew at Coach House Books knows how difficult it is to navigate the great big world of a brand-new season of titles. We might have coach in our name, but the books of Coach House are all first class: from the quality of their specially milled paper to the calibre of the words on their hand-bound pages. After over 50 years in the publishing biz, we aren’t just winging it; we’ve earned our wings.
This spring, we're turning up the juice. The infamous Coach House presses are working overtime to produce the 100 percent pure, fresh literature you've come to expect from us. In these pages, you'll find the fruits of our labour, which we hope will appeal.
Our dusty old coach house doesn’t readily evoke bright lights and cold stainless steel. But spend some time watching Tony, our Coach House printer, square up a freshly printed press sheet, or take one look at our guillotine cutter, and you might begin to see a little of the surgical side that complements our love of the human and the messy. So, with a nod to the more exacting angels of our nature, this fall we’re putting everything on the table to see what’s inside.
Seasonal allergies or not, at Coach House our noses are always twitching. Founded on a spirit of innovation that could never be mistaken for trend hopping, Coach House believes in literature that boldly examines the people, places, and traditions that comprise the everyday. Even if that calls for the occasional dive into the rabbit hole.
At Coach House, we like our books gutsy. While our little coach house may appear unassuming, we embrace a sense of boldness and adventure when it comes to literature, and we hope, dear reader, that you feel the same way. In that spirit, we’d like to welcome you to a season that’s definitely not for the faint of heart.
