Epidote Press is an independent publishing imprint based in Northern California’s Point Reyes Peninsula. We are devoted to publishing historical texts, as well as contemporary music, art, and writing concerned with landscape and the poetics of place.

Founded by Kirston Lightowler, the press is informed by her interest in landscape, natural and environmental history, reading and the art of research, folklore, and translation. We are particularly interested in publishing work that exists at the intersection of art, literature, and science – finding associations and connections across branches of knowledge and fields of meaning.
