David R. Godine, Publisher, Inc. currently has in print over 700 works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry of the highest rank. The company has been independent since 1970 and its aim is to identify the best work and produce it in the best way possible.

Lawrence;  Imago Mundi, a line of original books devoted to photography and the graphic arts; Verba Mundi, a series of great world literature in translation, featuring authors such as Georges Perec, José Donoso, Isaac Babel, and Anna Seghers; and Nonpareil Books, reissues of out-of-print works by best-loved authors such as William Gass, Donald Hall, and William Maxwell.
