A note on our new website feature...

We want to celebrate independent publishers at the New Regulator Bookshop! So we are inaugurating a new feature on our website. Every couple of months we will be highlighting one of the many amazing truly Indie presses around the country. We will feature their terrific titles in the store and rotate a selection of excerpts from some of their recent titles for you to get a flavor of their publications. 

Transit Books

Our summer featured publisher is Transit Books. Transit launched in 2017 and has seven books out so far, seven gems. Based out of Oakland, California they are working toward putting out eight to ten books annually, mainly books in translation. Transit places a special emphasis on its relationship with translators which shows in the titles they curate and the translations. We hope you will give their titles a try. We have some excerpts below...
