I am the size of what I see.

–Fernando Pessoa

Big Eye Books is an independent book publisher.

We publish ambitious realist fiction that features innovative writing with a cultural edge. Stylistically adventurous short story collections and novels are welcomed in equal measure.

We publish nonfiction that explores the human condition through a contemporary and historical lens, with social issues, culture, work, the environment, and business forming the cornerstone of our interests.

Our goal is to publish beautiful and powerful books that change the world for the better.

We believe in the power of collaboration and the interconnectedness of ideas. Banding together with a common purpose is a guiding principle in our work. It’s one we bring to bear in our relationships with authors, editors, designers, and readers.

We are headquartered in lovely Athens, GA, and welcome voices from around the globe.
