Thanks for posting this!

I tend to gravitate to Broadview Press and Oxford. From time to time I like Norton.

Not sure if this fits here exactly, but I thought of this question when I got an Amazon email today about New York Review Books. They reissue good older, sometimes forgotten or neglected books. I think this is a great project, although I must admit I haven't bought many of them. I found them because they've been issuing a lot of new translations of Georges Simenon.
I am generally very pro-Random House since they were the one big publisher who did NOT raise the price of their Amazon Kindle editions in response to Steve Jobs' IPad deal.

A friend of mine is obsessed with small publishing companies.

Do you have some publishers that tend to publish books that you love?

...or, editions that you prefer to buy over others?
