Rudi Publishing

Selected covers from Rudi Publishing titles from 1987-2002.

Rudi Publishing was founded in 1987, in Iowa City, Iowa and moved to San Francisco in 1995. From it's inception it actively participated in the independent publishing community both locally (Bay Area Editor's Forum, Northern California Book Marketing Association) and nationally (COSMEP, PMA, SPAN). For over fifteen years it published a diverse collection of nonfiction titles.


In 2014, the company began a new chapter by reopening in San Diego. Combining the quality of a legacy publishing tradition with the opportunities of new publishing models, Rudi Publishing produces books of value with individual attention to titles. In an exciting addition to the publishing program, it has expanded the focus of the firm to include fiction.
