With/out Pretend is a Toronto-based publishing company managed by a small team of passionate humans. We love talking about our feelings, long walks at sunset and wondering about the future.

Today, With/out Pretend is a "break even" project, which means we often spend more on making a book than we make back, largely due to the cost of quality printing with local, values-aligned suppliers. We currently do no receive government funding and are privately funded by our founder, Erin Klassen, and supported by patrons, like you. 

Champion the kind of art you want to see in the world.
