Cock your hat - angles are attitudes.
— Frank Sinatra

Don't let the name fool you. OLD HAT PRESS publishes books on the cutting edge.


Read in style.

We are a Los Angeles press founded by Christian Elder [writer/poet] and Raleigh Nikita Tomasi [digital artist]. Our mission is to publish outside voices. We are moved by unconventional talent; absurd, avant-garde, post-modern, post-internet, and experimental work from authors of diverse cultural backgrounds.  We specialize in pushing the boundaries of design to support emerging writers and brand their identity. We publish poetry, prose, and experimental writing. In terms of presentation, our books are tactile expressions of the writer's genre.
