O Balthazar Press  & Collective (b. 2013) is a collaborative of interdisciplinary artists that specializes in beautifully-made books of poetry, plays, and hybrid literature by innovative and challenging writers. It also works as a performance art production company, and, more often, a little traveling poetry theater.

In particular, O Balthazar seeks to support authors whose work is simply too daring, visionary, or off the beaten path to be published elsewhere. We champion writers who champion a compassionate and relentlessly curious world.

O Balthazar Press is committed to minimizing our production impacts as much as possible. We will only use socially and environmentally responsible paper (FSC-certified) and biodegradable inks and chemistry. We are open to discussion and collaboration with other publishers and printers in order to lessen further damage to the climate, endangered forests, and indigenous communities most affected by the book industry.
