Literati Insisto is a monthly subscription program whose subscribers receive paperback originals published by small, independent presses, specially selected by our curator. Each month's selection is shipped directly to you, or can be picked up in-store. Insisto, which can be translated from Latin as "press on" or "persevere," exists to celebrate the beautiful, unusual, original books that make indie presses so vital to the literary world.
Insisto selections include fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction. Every month, subscribers receive a letter of introduction, typed on one of our antique typewriters, along with a Literati bookmark. Independent presses release a limited catalog of titles each season, and tend to be more mission-driven than commercial publishing houses.
Ongoing subscribers are charged for the price of the book, generally $15 to $20, plus tax. Shipping is an additional $4/month. We ship anywhere in the U.S.
Insisto subscriptions make great gifts. We offer 3-, 6-, and 12-month subscription packages, whose price includes tax and shipping. Where ongoing subscribers are charged monthly, gift subscriptions are charged through one-time payment.
