Things base and vile, holding no quantity,
Love can transpose to form and dignity.
Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind.
-A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Painted Blind Publishing is an optimistic house which prides itself on the publication of authors whose books raise the standard of literature and question the nature of reality. It is our belief that language is the vehicle of consciousness, and so only by elevating language and storytelling may we truly raise the consciousness of mankind. Whether it’s a novel that leaves its reader a changed person or a picture book which uses characters of the past to educate the children of the future, Painted Blind is intent on providing its customers with the most mind-expanding literature available.
Painted Blind Publishing is a relatively new firm to the publishing world, having been founded in 2015 by author M. F. Sullivan as the culmination of a longtime dream–not just to see her own work in print, but to elevate new and experimental authors with otherwise-unheard voices to the forefront of the American imagination. Though Sullivan is its flagship author, the company intends to begin the search for another fresh voice as soon as publishing and proper marketing are economically viable.
