Thought Catalog Books is a new kind of book publisher. Founded in 2012, Thought Catalog Books is the print and physical media division within the Thought Catalog Network.
       Books connect our company’s digital-native roots with our love of traditional book publishing. Our books are designed as beloved art pieces.
We publish work we love.
       Pioneering an author-first and holistic approach to book publishing, we have created numerous best-selling print books, audiobooks, and eBooks in over 30 languages.

Books Contain Universes

With every book we publish, we collaborate with our authors to build a universe extending each work beyond the page. Customized to each author and their individual goals, we ideate and produce events, podcasts, digital artifacts, as well as physical objects like clothing, candles, and journals.

Books aren’t an antiquated technology. Books are cutting-edge technology. In fact, books are the greatest virtual reality machines on the market. While virtual reality engulfs the brain to present a different reality, books engage the brain and present a different reality through a more creative exchange between medium and self.
