Experience the World of Art

All Quotations »

"One uses paints, but one paints with feeling."
Jean Siméon Chardin

In this very moment we are experiencing something unprecedented: the transformation of the art book into an art object. On the one hand, the continual pressure from  the market to manufacture books less expensively and make them more affordable can’t be denied. On the other, there is increasing demand for durability, solidity, and quality. The art book itself is becoming a valuable collector’s item. Who wants to acquire a catalogue, an artist’s book, or a catalogue raisonné without believing it will still be a jewel in one’s book collection a decade from now?

It’s this kind of book that we at Hatje Cantz believe in and that we enjoy producing for you: books that live on.
