About Us

Chin Music Press is a curiously bibliophilic indie publisher. Bruce Rutledge and Yuko Enomoto founded their business in 2002 while living in Tokyo. At the time, media conglomerates were swallowing up publishing companies, greatly reducing the opportunities for risky books to get into print. The time was ripe for small presses to fill the gap, especially with contemporary and edgy literature from Japan. For 15 years, they’ve been creating beautiful, engaging, and affordable books on a wide range of quirky and eclectic topics.
