CONFLUX PRESS is an independent custom publisher of trade books in all genres based

in Marina del Rey, California. CONFLUX PRESS was co-founded in 2003 by poet Jim Natal and book artist/graphic designer Tania Baban. 


Custom publishing means there is no manuscript submission or selection process. As long
as your manuscript or publishing project meets our quality and content criteria, we can design a book for you to match your vision at a reasonable cost. We specialize in taking projects from final manuscript, through each design phase, to the delivery of printed and bound books. All CONFLUX PRESS book projects are treated as creative collaborations,

and authors are involved at every stage of the book production process.


CONFLUX PRESS also offers book and cover design services to other publishing houses
as well as for individual projects. Book editing is also available.


Jim Natal is a poet, literary presenter, and workshop leader. He is the author of five poetry collections and multiple chapbooks. A multi-year Pushcart Prize nominee, his poetry has appeared in numerous print and online journals, as well as in many anthologies. After a 25-year career as a creative executive with the National Football League, he received his MFA in Creative Writing from Antioch University L.A.

Tania Baban is a Los Angeles-based book and visual artist and graphic designer. She earned a BFA from Otis College of Art & Design and worked for 13 years as a designer for the NFL’s Creative Services Division. Her artist’s books are held in many private, museum, and library collections, including London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, the National Museum
of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC, and
The Getty Research Institute. Along with co-founding Conflux Press, she also established Atelier Baban, her visual arts and design studio.
