I have researched and designed a Tibet Township Map (42"x54") with around 160 pages of town names that are located on the map. The town names are written in three scripts: Tibetan, English, and Chinese, as well as in Pinyin, transliteration, and romanization of Tibetan pronounciation.

I am looking for a publisher that is not expensive. My goals is to retain the copyright myself.

Any advice or suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Do you mean a publisher, who will pay you to produce the map and then take the finished product and distribute it to bookstores and retail outlets?

Or a printer, who will print your work onto paper and deliver the maps to you because you have already figured out how you will distribute and sell the finished product?

Dennis,

I was thinking of a PRINTER, if I can pay. If not I like to find a PUBLISHER who is willing to print my map.

Any suggestions?
