Missing Links Press founder/publisher Tom Ingalls is an award-winning graphic designer who has worked with a range of book publishers throughout his career.

With the explosion of digital publishing in recent years, he notes that many old publishing models just don’t work anymore. “I wanted to create a business based on beautiful yet affordable books that have both great design and content, just as the Industrial Revolution spurred a return to artisan work,” he says.

Tom’s vision for Missing Links Press is a new style and level of collaboration offering investment participation from publisher, author and designer – with the goal of filling the gap between self-publishing and traditional book publishers, who often have a different agenda. “In essence we are shifting the economies of publishing to where the outlay is shared among contributors, so no one person becomes overburdened financially.”
