JADED IBIS PRESS

WE SUPPORT ORIGINALITY.


Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Jaded Ibis Press publishes fine and unusual works of literature, CDs, DVDs, and related prod ucts. Our intent is to facilitate the convergence of diverse media and art forms, and give wide exposure to literary, visual and musical artists of exceptional talent.


WE LOVE BOOKS. PERIOD.


Jaded Ibis Press publishes each book in four editions: ebook (under $10), black-and-white paper ($12-24), color paper ($30-80), and fine art limited editions ($2000-20,000). Each title includes visual art by a notable artist or artists and an audio track of music, spoken word or sound art. Fine art editions incorporate a variety of materials and conceptually reflect the content of the book.

In Daughter, a daughter/doctor encounters the dead body of an octopus in the desert, perhaps the corpse of a lost god, and through her study of his physical organs, sheds more light on her relationship with the world at large somewhat similar to https://top10binarydemo.com/ where you get more knowledge about the various automated trading systems popular in the trading world. A look at this site will shed more light on the complete process of trading using robots and you will not end up asking questions about trading unlike in the book where you ask What is it like to be a daughter? What is it like to be God?, the text asks, intuiting implications of the consciousness of God and of the hermetic vessel that is narrative itself, while  revealing the sanctity of living, the unholy holiness of strange encounters, and the hidden mysticism of language.


WE RESPECT CREATORS.


Jaded Ibis Press pays our authors 40% net royalties, compared to the traditional 71/2-10%. We pay our visual artists 10% net royalties, and our musicians each share in the 50% net royalties from the CD. Jaded Ibis Productions produces the CD compilation of music created for the previous 10-12 titles.

WE CARE ABOUT HOME.


Jaded Ibis Press uses digital and print-on-demand publishing because we care about the fate of the environment. Our business decisions are guided by an attempt to perpetuate literature that is intellectually, culturally and ecologically sustainable.


YOU SHOULD KNOW.


Each year in the U.S. alone hundreds of thousands of new titles are published by traditional printing methods; that is, in bulk quantities. An average of 150,000 multiplied by an average print run of 5,000, multiplied by an average of 200 pages per book equals nearly 150 Billion (150,000,000,000) pages annually, plus book covers and jackets.

Half of these books will be returned to their publisher and destroyed or liquidated. Those that cannot be liquidated will also be destroyed.

Timber is cut down not only for the billions of book pages and covers but also for the wooden pallets on which to ship the books. Two-thirds of the world’s cut wood, including rare hardwoods, is used for shipping pallets.

It’s difficult to put a number on the enormous amount of energy used to warehouse undemanded books; to manufacture the ink, paper, binding materials, and shipping pallets; to transport the pallets from printer to warehouse to bookstore; to process the fuel used to transport the pallets of paper products and books, to manufacture the transport vehicles, to manufacture the parts used in manufacturing the vehicles, ad nauseam.
