Birdcage Bottom Books was founded by J.T. Yost in 2008 with the help of a Xeric Grant. Although we do not operate a brick-and-mortar store, we are all over the internet and make regular appearances at indie comic conventions like SPX, MoCCA and CAB. In 2022 we partnered with Microcosm Publishing. They represent us in the book trade.
We are both a publishing company and a distro representing over 100 self-publishing artists and small-presses. Our focus is on handmade comics, prints and apparel, often limited editions using customized printing techniques like risograph and screenprinting. Our goal is to help independent artists get their work into more hands.
Our publications have been nominated for and/or won multiple awards including the Eisners, Ignatz, Charly Eiselt, DiNKY and Japan Media Arts awards!
Although we welcome submissions (please specify whether you are interested in our publishing your work or distributing your work), please understand that we have limited resources. Also, please feel free to follow up if you don't hear back from us fairly quickly. We read all submissions, but it can take a while depending on our workload at the time.
