Merve Verlag

Though I’m sure many have heard of  (and read from) it, this post goes to Merve Verlag,  mono.kultur’s neighbor during the MISS READ Berlin Art Book Fair.  The quintessential philosopher’s publication since 1970, it has introduced to the intellectually voracious such venerable minds as Louis Althusser and Gilles Deleuze.  In contrast to the stagnancy that usually pervades academia, Merve has yet to decelerate, averaging a new publication per month–deservedly making it a favorite of the booksmart.
For some bulk in your fall reading list, I was particularly taken with their offering Inaesthetics #2 Animality.  Be warned: the back cover is a bit NSFW.
