Alto is an independent literary press founded in Québec City in 2005 by Antoine Tanguay. Very active on the international publishing scene, Alto publishes unusual and bold literary fiction from Québec, Canada and abroad. As we try to follow the mantra “Publish less, publish better”, we only publish 10 to 12 books per year.

In our quest to astound and confound, Alto has a new tool at its disposal: a publishing lab we call Alea. A playground for a team bursting with crazy ideas for books, a sort of R&D department even, Alea is to our publishing house what a yard is to a real house: a space where we can run free and also plant beautiful things.
