Map of Publishing In the USA

Publishing has been, historically, an urban activity. Curious about whether the current growth of independent and small publishers is bucking that trend, I decided to import some data on US publishers into Google Maps. This is the result.

Where are the publishers?

Using the data from PublishersArchive.com, I decided to take a look at the locations of (primarily) independent publishers in the United States.

While the clusters of independent publishing houses are still predominantly located in urban areas there are publishers in suburban and rural areas as well. There also appear to be some publishing deserts in the midwest.
