Rosarium Publishing has recently launched their “Next Level” crowdfunding campaign and needs our help. Their goal is to be able to print thousands of books and continue their quest to dramatically increase diversity in publishing with the high quality of work they’re known for.
In just three short years, Rosarium has been able to produce several critically acclaimed projects such as Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and Beyond, Stories for Chip: A Tribute to Samuel R. Delany, The Sea Is Ours: Tales of Steampunk Southeast Asia, and APB: Artists Against Police Brutality, A Comic Book Anthology.
The company has been so successful that demand has dictated that a switch from print-on-demand to offset printing is now necessary to get their work to the public sooner. Many of their titles are being read in high school and college classrooms across the country, and they want to keep it up!
Projects such as the indie comic “DayBlack” and the crime novel Making Wolf have won literary awards, and the company has been mentioned, reviewed, and featured in Publishers Weekly, Chicago Tribune, Library Journal, Locus Online, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, countless websites and blogs, and The New York Times.
Rosarium has been able to accomplish all this through hard work, fan support, and print-on-demand production, but they need the resources to move their mission ever forward.
