Hyperbole Books, Our Backstory

Buy the Hype
hype logo
Christened in 2004 as an imprint of San Diego State University Press, Hyperbole Books is dedicated to publishing cutting-edge, over-the-top experiments in critical theory, literary criticism and graphic narrative. Imagine some odd, bastard child of SEMIOTEXT[e], Taschen, and Fantagraphics Books raised in the dumpster behind Powells, and you'll begin to feel the vibe that defines Hyperbole Books.  Remember, "Buy the Hype."

HYPERBOLE Books maintains the "scholarly" editorial quality associated with major U.S. University Presses, while advocating as well, a brasher, harsher, more strident editorial policy: think of a rant with footnotes; a harangue with a bibliography; a scream with an index. Hyperbole Books volumes will be available in print in special trade paperback editions.
