“A pleasure to hold, a delight to read.”

Founded in 2017 by author Brian James Freeman as a private imprint to publish collectible chapbooks for his Patreon supporters, Lividian Publications has since grown into a full-time publisher of hardcover special editions by bestselling authors including Stephen King, Robert McCammon, Catriona Ward, Stewart O’Nan, Michael Koryta, Bentley Little, and Joe Hill.

Lividian Publications continues working with our favorite authors and artists in a variety of genres to publish significant books in elegant editions using time-honored methods and handsome materials. These are truly modern special editions crafted with old world charm.

Not only will you be proud to display our beautiful editions in your office or home library, but our high-quality materials and production techniques create distinguished volumes you can pass down for generations of readers to enjoy.

That doesn’t mean these books are only meant to be looked at, though. Each title is designed with readability in mind. We believe a gorgeous book that cannot be read defeats the entire purpose of a book.

In 2022, we added high quality trade hardcover and trade paperbacks to our lineup to bring acclaimed works that had previously only been published in hard-to-find special editions to a wider audience.

We hope you’ll take a few moments to learn more about our projects, and please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
