Every authentic poem contributes to the labour of poetry . . . to bring together what life has separated or violence has torn apart.
John Berger

the house of sublime poetry

Copper Coin is dedicated to publishing outstanding poetry, nonfiction and fiction in English, Punjabi, Marathi and Hindi.

Our faith in the power and beauty of the book drives us. We deal in a currency whose value transcends time and geographies: poetry—and everything related to it, be it nonfiction, fiction or any kind of writing that defies categorisation.

BOOKS OF THE MONTH

PRAISE FOR COPPER COIN
“Small presses are like unprofitable but essential railway lines. Once they are built you begin to see their importance. Copper Coin is one such line on an old network that includes Praxis, NewGround, Clearing House, Broom, Nissim Ezekiel,  Almost Island, Pras, Harbour Line, and Poetrywala. It is the first to publish books in Punjabi, English, Marathi and Hindi. Those who travel on it once may want to do so again. A season ticket is advisable.”
