About Last Word Press:

Last Word Press is located in Olympia, WA in the catacombs of Last Word Books. Last Word is more than a bookstore, more than the four walls that contain it. Those nattering naboobs of negativity have long declared the death of the printed word, but we refuse to let that happen. Using an antique letterpress, offset presses and digital copiers we are slowly cobbling together the foundations of a publishing empire.

More than ever we believe in the need to invest in the traditions and habits of the printed word, to give voice to the lives and livelihood of a life that cannot be captured in pixels alone, a life that is more than the sum of its reading. With each our own story to tell we must capture that illusive spirit that lives between the lines and after the closing of the book of our days, where we all live past dreams and remembrances of things past.

The future of print is not dead, it's read!

About Last Word Books:

Books are a gateway drug. It starts out innocently enough, reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, pretty soon you are reading harder stuff like Kerouac and Burroughs, the next thing you know you're strung out on Bukowski and DeSade, worrying about the Patriot Act and Free Speech, and joining the ACLU. If books are your drug of choice, Last Word has your fix!

About Last Earth Distro:

We are a radical book selling organism loosely affiliated with several Pacific Northwest Independent booksellers, publishers, and organizations. Our story began in 2005 when the respected Northwest radical publisher Loompanics Unlimited closed their doors after 30+ years, and we acquired much of their inventory. But our roots run three decades deep in underground books, and we have formed a rogue entity, Last Earth Distro, to better serve the needs of our audiences in Cascadia and our customers across the globe.

Although you may not agree with some of the subject matter we offer, rest assured that you’re supporting a good organization. We value individual rights and freedoms, we champion the environment and Earth’s remaining natural resources, and we believe in homegrown food, politics, and principles.

We represent an extended community of Activists across the spectrum: parents, teachers, craftspeople, blue-collar workers, students, republican farm wives, and small dogs. Our proceeds fuel our future endeavors, put locally grown and organic food in our children’s tummies, and fight for common causes in our communities. We try to support local communities wherever we travel, and we hope you’ll consider supporting ours.

Our fine literature is also available at the following Independent Pacific Northwest Bookstores: Earthlight Books in Walla Walla, WA & Last Word Books & Press in Olympia, WA. Please drop in to either of these fine establishments to request our titles, someone there will be able to point you in the right direction.
