We updated our portfolio page this week, adding a wide range of titles covering topics from art & photography to cooking, music, and fashion. There are new photography books, like the much-anticipated The Photography of Modernist Cuisine. We’ve also continued to partner with Marquand Books on several new museum collection books, including Estampas de la Raza and Daily Pleasures.
Two books about the music industry printed recently. Traffic Entertainment Group’s Beat Box features the drum machine collection of Joe Mansfield, and Sinecure Books provides an inside view of the hip-hop scene in Houston with their newest title, Houston Rap. The slipcase alone makes a statement. We featured it in a previous post a few weeks ago.

One book, in particular, we wanted to highlight is the inventive photography book, The City, by Lori Nix. Though we’ve worked on quite a few photography books, the subject of this one is something we’ve never encountered before in all our years of fine book printing–post-apocalyptic miniatures. Nix spent eight years creating miniature models of different scenes within a city. She created a library, a bar, a classroom, and many other beautifully crafted models. While the craftsmanship, itself, is noteworthy, it’s really Nix’s fascination with the beauty of destruction that makes The City stand out.
The City is published by Decode Books. You can read more about it on their website.
We hope you enjoy scrolling through the updated portfolio. We’re very happy to have been a part of the creation of all these beautiful books.
