About us

Pitzilein Books was founded in 2016. We have published books in a wide range of formats, in topics such as literature, visual art, and philosophy. Idalia Sautto, Pitzilein's founder, is an editor, art historian, and writer with editorial experience in larger cultural institutions such as Fondo Editorial Tierra Adentro, a magazine dedicated to the promotion of up-and-coming Mexican artists, and one of the Mexican Ministry of Culture's main projects. Pitzilein Books distributes its books in libraries in Mexico City, Bogotá, Chicago, and Barcelona, among other cities. It participates in the active circuit of book fairs throughout Mexico, including the Guadalajara International Book Fair, which is the largest in the Americas. Pitzilein is also active in Mexico's art book circuit, including participation in Index Art Book Fair 2020 and other similar events. On average, Pitzilein books participates in 5 book fairs per year (with the obvious exception of the Covid pandemic time). The quality of our press's catalogue and production values has motivated several larger institutions to seek collaborations or co-publishing schemes with Pitzilein books. The list includes international organizations such as Gemany's Goethe Institut (Mexican chapter), which put out the book "Blickwinkel: momento futuro." At the national level, Pitzilein books has partnered with Mexico's National University (UNAM) in the publication of philosophy books in translation. Large foundations such as the Fundación Arte Contemporáneo Jumex have sponsored Pitzilein publishing projects.
