This is the current City Lights Books catalog. As you can see, it depicts a kind of Kindle graveyard. “Smash your Kindle,” City Lights seems to say, “we publish books in print.”

Is City Lights, the maverick publishing house founded by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti in the 1950s, against eBooks? So it appears. Or at least they’re holding out a while longer. Though who wouldn’t love to get a copy of Howl on their Kindle?

City Lights publishes many wonderful books, nonetheless, even if you do have to read them on paper.
