About Us


Fountainhead Press has been developing excellent textbooks since 2002, but we are most proud of developing relationships with you, the creative and innovative instructors who sculpt our textbooks.


Our founders, Scott Timian and Felix Frazier, built Fountainhead Press to address all that has gone wrong with the higher education publishing industry.  With more than 50 years of combined publishing experience, Scott and Felix knew the instructor and student frustrations with the existing textbook market, which is glutted with overpriced, inflexible, encyclopedia-length texts.


Fountainhead Press is the solution to all the misery of the mass market. We collaborate with you, either matching you with our stellar range of existing texts or developing the personalized, content-rich, style-specific course materials that you deserve.  This allows us to open a forum for the field’s most groundbreaking scholarship, and we guarantee that your vision will never be compromised. We keep our costs to absolute minimum by following the most eco-friendly practices, and we pass our savings on to your students.


Our physical headquarters are in Southlake, Texas, but our textbooks and our representatives are present on campuses all over the country. Fountainhead Press is ready to help you give your students a perfectly priced, expertly tailored textbook. Please contact us today to get started.
