ARTBOOK Collector and Library Services
ARTBOOK works with private collectors, businesses and cultural institutions to build customized, curated libraries of the very best -- and most collectible -- books on art, photography, architecture and design by the world's most respected museum and independent publishers.
Whether a client wishes to build a general art book library or one that focuses on a particular subject, we build to suit. We are pleased to build upon pre-existing libraries, or to start from scratch. Past projects have ranged from consultations with complex international museum libraries to mid-sized gallery and boutique hotel collections to private, personal libraries for both new and seasoned collectors.
We can help you locate out-of-print and rare art, photo, design and architecture books as well as artist's books and limited editions through our trusted network of international dealers.
To speak with us at ART BASEL MIAMI, DESIGN MIAMI, the NEW YORK ART BOOK FAIR or to make an appointment to visit us at our New York office or our Los Angeles Showroom, please contact Alex Galan or Cory Reynolds at (212) 627-1999.

“When I walk into someone’s house the first thing I do is look at the books,” says Galan. “It tells you everything you need to know about someone.” That sentiment might be expected coming from one of the most prominent art-book publishers in the business, but we have to admit we’ve done a little title snooping of our own.
