Viggo Mortenson’s Publishing Company: Perceval Press


Oh, Aragorn. Can you do no wrong? Your arrow flies ever swift, straight into my heart.

It’s true. Aside from being an excellent actor (and musician, artist, poet…), Viggo Mortenson appears to be a booklover. In 2002, the Danish-American dreamboat (sorry, sorry) founded Perceval Press, a publishing company devoted to showcasing the talents of little-known authors and artists who might otherwise go undiscovered. The press is based in Santa Monica, California, and boasts a varied catalogue of poetry, art, fine literature, fiction, non-fiction and more, some of which Mortenson has produced or collaborated on himself. And it’s not just books – Perceval Press puts out CDs, as well.

The Perceval Press web site has a full listing of the over 50 titles they’ve released so far, as well as personal recommendations of everything from films, books, political reads and more.

Explore some titles from Perceval Press.

….Do it for Viggo.

    Hello Beth Carswell, and/or Viggo Mortenson;

    Firstly, I want to congratulate the conception of AbeBooks!!!
    A wonderful way to introduce works created by the talented underdogs of society who need a hand up to expose their creations!
    I look forward to one day being published by Abebooks!!!
    Sincerely;
    Yolanda Schella
