Humble Quill

purveyor of quality syl•la•bles

Artisinal, goblin-lettered literature to delight you.

Our Process

At Humble Quill, we do things the old-fashioned way. Clarence, our print-goblin, painstakingly hand-letters every page of every book—even the eBooks.

Does that take extra time? Of course, but it’s worth the effort. Because traditions matter. Quality. Attention to detail. Unpaid labor by magically-bound feral humanoids.

It’s how we’ve always done things. And we think you’ll read the difference.

Contact Leon

Leon, our spokes-ogre, will be delighted to answer your inquiries.

Well…actually, he won’t be delighted. Nothing puts Leon in a fouler mood than “FOOLISH HUMAN QUESTIONS.” He will answer, though.

He’s not good at this, but it’s better than letting him rampage through the countryside eating stray pets and unattended children.
