The März-Verlag was a German publishing house run by Jörg Schröder, similar in style to Eric Losfeld's publishing imprints in France.

Jörg Schröder was also responsible for the “Melzer Verlag” and the German “Olympia Press”. He went bankrupt in the early or mid eighties. One of his current activities is a blog for the tageszeitung (taz).

Here are some of the authors he published: Rolf Dieter Brinkmann, Castaneda, Leonard Cohen, Robert Crumb, Fassbinder, John Giorno, Gerhard Malanga, Kenneth Patchen and lots of others. In the Melzer Verlag he was responsible for the first and only german edition of J. G. Ballard's “Love and Napalm”.

The books had a very distinctive look - yellow with thick black and red types.
