WordsWorth is an independent publishing company founded in 2005. Located in Cody, Wyoming, we focus on books about the history, culture, and environmental issues of the Northern Rocky Mountains.
In addition to publishing, we help authors market and promote their books. We only accept manuscripts we believe in, and when we publish a book we are committed to promoting it through our network of booksellers and libraries. WordsWorth supports our authors with a large network of professional writers, illustrators, historians, designers, editors, proofreaders, and printers — a network developed through years of experience and collaboration.
WordsWorth was acquired in 2014 by Tafoya Design – a multifaceted design firm encompassing book, web, print, and instructional design. Renée Tafoya is president and creative director. Renée is a design educator, retired as associate professor of graphic design and typography at Northwest College and has contributed to the curriculum design of graphics courses at UC Santa Cruz Extension. She served as a consulting art director for Instructional Products at Apple Computer Inc., and as publications director at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Renée serves on the boards of numerous art organizations and is a past President of the Park County Arts Council.
