What We Do
We create surprising and delightful reading experiences in physical and digital forms, working with global commercial and cultural partners like Google, Ace Hotel and WeTransfer. Our work includes books as beautiful cultural objects, championing some of the greatest writers and designers in the world. And also digital books that bring the magic of technology to great storytelling.
What We’re Proud Of
London-based Visual Editions launched in 2010, with the aim to create new kinds of story experiences. Having shifted from publishing six books and a magazine series we commission and build stories for partner brands and cultural collaborators. We’ve been nominated for quite a few awards, given talks around the world, and hailed as leading cultural entrepreneurs by the Paul Hamlyn Breakthrough Fund.
We’re proud to have all of our books as part of The Art Institute of Chicago‘s permanent collection, to see Wayne McGregor give new life to our book, Tree of Codes, as a contemporary ballet, and to be working with the very talented people at Google’s Creative Lab in Sydney on Editions At Play, a space for books powered by the magic of the internet.
