LPD Press created the New Mexico Book Co-op in 2004 to help promote the literary diversity of New Mexico Book Publishers & Authors & New Mexico Books. It is New Mexico's largest cooperative organization featuring New Mexico Books, publishers and authors. We are a partnership of over 950 publishers and authors who are interested in showcasing and selling books about New Mexico and the Southwest. We sell books, showcase books, and help people meet these goals.
