Founded in 1999 in Los Angeles as If Publications and now located in San Francisco, IF SF is a not-for-profit press that has published books in a range of genres, including memoir, poetry, and photography. IF SF books are now in the archives of both private and institutional collectors in the U.S. and abroad.

The IF SF imprint, praised in the past for publishing the work of 'voices that deserve to be heard in books of visually arresting formats' is known for taking a collaborative approach to each project, inviting the artist to take part in the creation of the book. Each IF SF book is published in the medium best suited to the material.

While continuing to focus on the literary and graphic arts, IF SF remains open to the projects of interest in other categories.

 IF SF books are distributed to the trade by Small Press Distribution find out more at
