Parallax Press Address

Print On Demand

You may have noticed that some of our titles, though precious in content, are not available in print at this time. We are excited to let you know that Parallax Press is in negotiations with a Print-On-Demand service which will hopefully lead to all of our titles being available without the high costs of a large print run. Thanks to new technology, the differences between a regular edition and the print-on-demand version are becoming harder to detect.

Here are some of the titles that we looking forward to offering with this service:
Dharma Gaia, Seeds of Peace, The Stone Boy, Finding Our True Home, Taste of Earth

Thank you for your continued support, may the year ahead be joyous!

In peace,
Travis, Rachel, Terry, Leigh, Sophie, Heidi, and Chipsy (the bird)
