Eberhardt Press is named in honor of Isabelle Eberhardt, the great anarchist writer and adventurer who was swept away by a flash flood in Algeria at age 27, more than a hundred years ago. But her writings have lived on long after her passing. She lived freely and fully, writing of her experiences in the Muslim world in a voice of clarity, depth and beauty. Her life and her stories are an inspiration for those who desire to embrace life to the fullest, and who refuse to be mired in repressive constraints.
Eberhardt Press, established in 2005, publishes original titles and reprints of classic texts. Everything published by Eberhardt Press is designed and printed at our shop in Portland, Oregon, harkening back to the days when publishers, composers and printers co-existed as part of the same operation. We strive to apply craft traditions to our printwork, exploring paper and ink as vehicles for communication, with the idea that social transformation is not a grungy, messy thing, but a thing of beauty, like a blooming flower with deep roots.
We also provide design and printing services to a diverse range of clients that includes zine publishers, co-ops, musicians, artists, non-profit organizations, activist groups, small businesses, and lots of other folks in Portland and around North America.
