INSTRUCTORS + REVIEWERS // If you are with a review or reporting outlet who wants review copies, or you are a teacher who needs desk or examination copies, please contact Co-Director Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei  (

REPRINTS + RIGHTS PERMISSIONS // If you have a query regarding foreign distribution rights, translations, or any other sort of re-use or re-distribution of a punctum title, or any portion thereof, please contact Co-Director Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei (

BOOKSELLERS // If you are a bookseller, you should know that punctum very purposefully does not list its titles with commercial wholesalers such as Ingram, so if you wish to purchase titles directly from punctum books, at a 40% discount off list price + punctum pays the shipping for orders within the US (for international shipping, we split the shipping costs 50-50), please contact Co-Director Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei  (

LIBRARIES // If you are a librarian seeking a print copy of one or more of our titles, we offer a 40% discount off list price, and to order those you can contact our Co-Director Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei ( Our print books are also available through Gobi Library Solutions, and all of our ebooks are available open access immediately upon publication directly from our website. Our titles are also deposited with OAPEN (where they are also readily available to be downloaded free of charge) and catalogued with the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB). Our open ebooks are also deposited with Project Muse and JSTOR. We also have open platforms through which we can share with libraries COUNTER-compliant usage metrics, cross-referenced metadata, catalog records, annotation layers on our ebooks, and the like. We have a Supporting Library Membership Program whereby libraries can support our work with small annual fees.
