ABOUT

Artist books, primarily artist monographs and catalogues raisonnés, are greatly valued by artists, galleries, collectors, art historians and students and many others. However, these books are being published less and less because they rarely are profitable for trade publishers.

 

"The book is the book. To see it get out in the world, and to be a permanent record. That’s what The Artist Book Foundation does - in the same way a museum puts it on the wall, The Artist Book Foundation will publish it."

—Tom Slaughter, New York, NY 2012

The Artist Book Foundation’s publisher is Leslie Pell van Breen, one of the most highly regarded and accomplished art book publishers working today. Prior to co-founding The Artist Book Foundation, Leslie was publisher and executive director of Hudson Hills Press for more than a decade, building that company into the premier American publisher of fine art books. Leslie has worked with some of the finest museums in this country and published more than 75 titles ranging from artist monographs, catalogues raisonnés, to exhibition and collections catalogues as well as criticisms and historical surveys. Leslie and her team of the best book designers and editors in the United States are excited to continue working together, building on this impressive record.
