WE SUPPORT ORIGINALITY
Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Jaded Ibis Productions and its imprint Jaded Ibis Press publishes fine and unusual books, CDs, art objects and related products. 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.
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 KNOW EXCELLENCE.
The editors at Jaded Ibis Press are award-winning writers of innovative prose and poetry, dedicated to the continuing evolution of the literary arts, and to discovering and supporting new writers of 21st Century literature. We have years of dedicated teaching experience and frequently lecture on literature, including 21st Century narrative forms, at universities and writing conferences throughout the country.

WE CARE ABOUT HOME.
