Publishing is one of the oldest forms of communication of mass media. Through this medium stories and ideas are passed along to the masses. When it comes to telling stories crafted by and published by women and people of color, there are very few outlets quite like Rosarium Publishing.
Founded by Bill Campbell in 2013, Rosarium has made the proliferation of images, ideas and writing their charter. Science fiction comicbooks, steampunk, satire and crime novels filled with the characters and visions that show people of color as intelligent, industrious, intelligent and resourceful.
