Topovoros Books

Topovoros is the translation of the neologism locavore, a term that describes a group of people who consume only locally grown food. Topovoros Books is a non-profit publishing initiative, whose structure follows, as its name suggests, the dynamics and ethics of the gastronomic category from which it is inspired: The books of the publications are products of a strictly local approach to the distribution of knowledge and ideas: they are designed, printed, bound and distributed exclusively within the 900 acres in the area of Exarcheia of Athens, Greece. Topovoros is a very small publisher, operating under no legal entity and mostly in a labor of love ethos. More precisely, it consists of a small team of avid readers that finance the book printing entirely on shared wallets and the books are sold through a website that only accepts cryptocurrencies. Topovoros Books is both a fragile and uniquely resilient small catalogue. It doesn’t have the financial gravitas as it operates in a marginal language market, but as an editorial structure it has been able to consolidate a sizeable community of thinkers in Greece. Its goal is to reflect on ideas that are not popular in Greek culture and to contribute to the fight against sexism, racism and anti-semitism but also to provide texts on radical urban movements as well as digital and network cultures. Some of the books are translations from Donna Haraway, Saidiya Hartman, Laboria Cuboniks, Hélène Cixous, Eyal Weizman, Craig Dworkin, Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Guy Hocquenghem, Laurent de Sutter, Metahaven, McKenzie Wark et al.
