|Description:||OR Books is a new type of publishing company. It embraces progressive change in politics, culture and the way we do business.
Our list is highly selective: we publish just one or two books a month, combining established authors with new discoveries.
Our editorial standards are fastidious; our design clear and elegant.
We employ exciting promotion with highly creative use of video and the Internet.
To avoid the waste of unsold stock and returns, we produce our books only when they are wanted, either through print-on-demand or as platform-agnostic e-books.
This system allows a rapid publishing turnaround so relevant books can intervene quickly in issues of the day.
Most importantly, we sell direct to you, the customer, shipping promptly when a book is released and/or your order is received.
Our approach jettisons the inefficiencies of conventional publishing to better serve readers, writers and the environment.
It points to a new future for book publishing.
