Joshua Loong | 1 comments What other publishers/imprints are similar to NYRB Classics? Someone that finds out-of-print or backlist titles that are diamonds in the rough.

Interested to hear everyone's thoughts!

Miss M | 1 comments Faber Finds is a reprint imprint.
Persephone Books and Virago Modern Classics both focus on rediscovering neglected women writers.

Don't be misled by the word "classics" - some of these are by very obscure authors (at least, for most American readers).

Mirko | 77 comments I would definitely say the Dalkey Archive Press as mentioned above. Dalkey does have some newer titles but most of their publications are centred on older works.

The other publisher that comes to mind is the Melville House Publishing, specifically The Neversink Library editions. Some of the works published are by authors, whose work is also published by NYRB - the works by Adolfo Bioy Casares, and Georges Simenon, come to mind.

I love that Melville House has reissued Hans Fallada's books.
