Since 1987, Txalaparta has been the name of a free and independent Basque publisher. Txalaparta is committed to the cultural and editorial sovereignty of our country, Euskal Herria (the Basque Country). We also try to be the voice of whatever literary creation that improves the relations between the people of the planet, that helps to transform reality, that guards our historical memory, that opens paths towards diversity, to utopias…

We publish on average between 30 to 40 books a year in Basque and Spanish: Basque and world literature, political and historical essays, social criticism, classics of the political left, historical encyclopaedias. Our most distinctive feature is the wide base of readers who support Txalaparta´s projects by subscribing to one of our collections. Under the name of “editores independientes” we work and publish together with various publishers in other countries (Era in Mexico, LOM in Chile, Trilce in Uruguay) in order to guarantee our editorial freedom and diversity against monopolies and unified thought.

Founded in 1985, Trilce has published some 600 titles and continues to publish 30 to 40 titles every year. Although initially focused on fiction – which is still an important element today – essays have taken on increasing importance in Trilce’s catalogue. These essays discuss national identity or identities, and report on debates aimed at finding solutions to today’s challenges in the areas of culture, political science or history.
Because it firmly believes that independent publishing is crucial to the preservation of cultural diversity, Trilce has been a member of “Independent Publishers” since 1998, which includes Lom in Santiago, Chile, Era in Mexico and Txalaparta in Spain – Basque country. What is more, Trilce has been a member of the Alliance of Independent Publishers since its inception.

Con el gesto de recuperar su voz, el rostro de una de ellos en el logo de la editorial, buscamos mantener en la memoria sus miradas; fortalecer la creación, la reflexión, y el pensamiento crítico a través de la palabra escrita, desde el sur.

Founded on 1992 by Guido Indij, la marca editora is an independent publisher specialized in art, photography, essays and poetry. In the last few years it has ventured into the publication of multiple numbered portfolios and experimental art books, along with more famous authors such as Michel Foucault, J-F Lyotard, Paul Virilio, J-L Nancy, Sylviane Agacinscki. The main innovation of la marca editora is to experience in the relation between formats and contents. Thus, in each project it looks to extend the limits of the concept of what is known as a “book“.

Cuando creamos la marca hace 25 años, sabíamos que queríamos producir cultura y creatividad. Y sabíamos que para eso debíamos forjar una marca. El primer sistema de isologos que nos entregó el estudio de diseño incluía la marca videos, la marca cine, la marca música, la marca diseño y la marca editora. Aunque desde que alineamos una estrategia de trabajo y solo usamos el último...

Editorial Laboratorio Educativo was founded in 1973 in Caracas, Venezuela. Since 2019, it is also established in Bogota, Colombia.
This publishing house aims to encourage and propose a true educational renewal. We want to make available to Latin American educators the resources that we believe to be the most relevant and useful at the present time: documents, articles, information and experiences. We cannot stop at a deep critique of traditional education; we must seek – together – effective alternatives, appropriate methods, creative proposals. We try to articulate theoretical contributions and practical experiences in order to respond to the diverse needs of educators.

Most of the independent and academic publishers in Chile belong to this association today. It accounts for a significant share of locally-published books, especially those focussing on politics, social analysis, academic research, poetry and fiction.

The association was founded at the end of the 1990s. It has several aims: to participate in the development of the Chilean and Latino publishing sector; to develop collaboration and exchange, to promote and consolidate cultural diversity from a humanist, democratic, multicultural and Latino angle, respecting bibliodiversity; to further the role of books and reading as authentic means for development of the human era and citizens. Naturally, it also puts the spotlight on its members’ interests, but it aims more generally to promote the business of independent and academic publishing houses. It is involved in the definition and setup of policies for books and reading. It supports the creation and development of bookshops, book fairs and literary workshops; it participates in the consolidation and opening of markets for books, both in Chile and abroad, especially in Latin American countries. It promotes and protects copyright and publishing rights, especially from photocopying and piracy, applying well-balanced legislation in this field.
It also aims at setting books and reading back in Chilean collective spirit, currently blurred by the impact of other mass media.

Editoriales de Chile has designed and promoted a national policy for books and reading; it has participated since the beginning in the direction of the Chilean coalition for cultural diversity, fostering amendments for culture in international free trade negotiations, as well as the approval and ratification of the UNESO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. Lastly, it strives for a balanced legislation in terms of copyright and in order to strengthen a national book industry, as well as a balanced exchange with other countries.
