Sel Yayıncılık (in Turkish: Sel Publishing) is an independent publishing company based in Istanbul, Turkey. It was established in 1990, and publishes both original Turkish books and translations of world literature, and both fiction and non-fiction.
Sel and its publisher Irfan Sancı faced obscenity charges in 2011 for publishing William S. Burroughs' The Soft Machine. It had previously faced a number of other obscenity charges, including for publishing Guillaume Apollinaire's Adventures of the Young Don Juan, but been acquitted. This acquittal was overturned by the Court of Cassation in August 2013.
