Little Otsu is an independent publisher and online shop based in Portland, Oregon. We collaborate with artists and designers to produce uncommon illustrated books and paper goods. Our products are printed on the West Coast of the United States using vegetable-based inks and 100% post-consumer recycled paper.

We're inspired and fueled by drawings, libraries, the 19th century, urban parks, French movies from the '60s, used books stores, Walt Whitman, modern architecture, mini comics, public radio, vegan pastries.
