Is is normal for a niche academic publisher to ask for a subsidy?

I am concerned about the potential stigma associated with paying for publication and would appreciate some advice - is this something that is normal/becoming more common? Do people just avoid talking about it?

More background: this is an edited book which has been accepted by a small press (in the arts), subject to the editors contributing around $15000 towards costs which will include marketing (book will be around 100000 words, 100 images). The press is selective and has produced a number of well-regarded titles. Our book has contributions from several well-known authors and submissions have been peer-reviewed (double blind).
