TWELVE was established in August 2005 with the objective of publishing no more than one book per month. We strive to publish the singular book, by authors who have a unique perspective and compelling authority. Works that explain our culture; that illuminate, inspire, provoke, and entertain. We seek to establish communities of conversation surrounding our books.  Talented authors deserve attention not only from publishers, but from readers as well. To sell the book is only the beginning of our mission.  To build avid audiences of readers who are enriched by these works – that is our ultimate purpose.  To learn more, visit our website at
