American Books is a press started by Natalie Haeusler, Brett Price, and Ed Steck in 2011. American Books will make visible and legible the work of a wide range of contemporary artists and writers and will take a variety of forms, from books and other physical objects of critical and creative work, to interviews, reviews, and more.

American Books is operated by three individuals without financial backing – all of the money made from the books, events, and projects is used to fund future books, events, and projects.
