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.[2][3] This acquittal was overturned by the Court of Cassation in August 2013.[4]

During the 2013 protests in Turkey, Sel helped launched the Gezi Park Library.[5]
