a visit with chronicle.

i dropped into chronicle books last week for a fun little meet and greet. located in a beautifully renovated old brick building complete with solar-power, it’s a wonderful work space they have created here in san francisco. it’s the ideal spot to brainstorm, create, and develop the plethora of art and design books in their independent publishing roster. thanks for the tour and all the inspiration! we even saw a sneak peek of Nichole Robertson’s much awaited book, paris in color, and i can tell you — it’s a beauty! here’s a few more of my favorite books from chronicle.

Typography Sketchbooks and Stylists/New Fashion Visionaries

    What a great selection – I want them all! I already have my eye on Paris in Color as I’ve got two visits to Paris planned this year – Tartine Bread looks like it could be a great accompaniment.
