about us

Shop Catalog brings together a community of creative minds to make beautiful products and reading experiences

books contain universes

With every book we publish, we collaborate with authors to build a universe extending beyond the page. We ideate and produce events, podcasts, digital artifacts, as well as physical objects like clothing, candles, and journals.
