Join our community and receive exceptional international books all year long—plus plenty of good karma!

Become a sustaining member and help Archipelago Books publish beautiful translations of world literature. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit publisher, we’re grateful for the generosity of our community. As a thank you, sustaining members receive copies of every book we publish (about 12 each year) as soon as they hit the shelves.

We invite you to become a member at just $15 a month or $150 a year and start supporting our mission today. You can also now take a friend on a global literary tour by purchasing a gift membership! 

All members receive:

  • Copies of each new title (roughly 1 book a month) before they hit bookstores
  • 25% discount at the Archipelago bookstore

Please email us for details about international or institutional memberships.

Membership fees renew annually. If you’d prefer to make a one-time payment and subscribe for a single year, you can do that by purchasing our gift membership … for yourself!

If you’re just looking for a way to support the press on an ongoing basis but don’t wish to order all the books, please consider making a recurring monthly donation. If you’d like to support the press while saving on shipping costs, we offer a digital subscription as well.

Increase your donation to get even more benefits!

For an extra $10 a month or $100 a year, Constellation members will receive additional books from our acclaimed backlist of 200 titles (curated by our staff, or by you).


Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

A note about the summer months: Our production slows down significantly between May and September. If you feel like you’re waiting longer for books during those months, please bear with us! Things speed up again in the fall, through the spring season. You’ll receive an average of 12 books per year!
