We are currently working with Bluebird books and Bookshop.org to build community libraries in Philadelphia. If you would like to help Philibros in their work, please click on this link to buy a Spanish-language book for a child or adult.

Thank you! 


Tursulowe Press was founded with three goals in mind:

To publish stories that might otherwise go unpublished and republish stories that are under-read

to get books into the hands of people who need them, whether in schools, prisons, shelters or homes

and to provide publishing and editing services for authors and artists who choose to work outside of the traditional publishing industry


Tursulowe Press in Philadelphia publishes under-told stories and republishes under-read classics. Our editions are designed using art in the public domain, and our stationery line includes notecards, postcards, journals, and bookmarks. The press's goal is to make beautiful, worthy books, and to work towards a world in which reading material ends up in people's hands and not the trash. Our not-for-profit Read for Need gathers and transports books from those who don't need them to those who do. We give away one book for every book we sell. 


We support Black Lives Matter, voting rights, trans rights, and each person's right to bodily autonomy. We try to tell stories we think are important. In doing so, we do our best to use the most respectful language we can. If our terminology is wrong, if our tone is off, if we make assumptions, or if we generally miss the mark, tell us.

We want to know.
