Beginning with the Fall 2014 season ARTBOOK | D.A.P. will once again be the exclusive trade distributor of STEIDL books in North America. Founded by Gerhard Steidl and based in Göttingen, Germany, STEIDL is one of the world’s leading publishers and printers of books on photography and art. The imprint's roster includes Robert Frank, Bruce Davidson, Bernice Abbott, Ed Ruscha, William Eggleston and Karl Lagerfeld, among many others.
Sharon Helgason Gallagher, President of ARTBOOK | D.A.P., states, "Gerhard Steidl's long term relationships with his artists enable him to have sustained engagement with these photographers, resulting in books of exceptional editorial and printing quality. We are delighted to once again be working with the imprint and bringing this important list to American bookstores, museum shops, gift retailers, libraries and, of course, photo collectors. Adding STEIDL to our catalogue—which includes photography publishers Aperture, Damiani, Daylight, La Fabrica, and Radius, as well as museum publishers such as The Museum of Modern Art—truly makes ARTBOOK | D.A.P. the leading supplier in America for photo books.”
STEIDL is led by Gerhard Steidl, who began working as a designer and printer in 1967 and started his own photo book program in 1996. Today, some of the world’s most renowned photographers and artists are part of the STEIDL program. What began as a small enterprise has evolved into one of the finest and most distinguished printing and publishing companies in the world. The STEIDL program is unique in that all titles are designed and printed under the same roof; Gerhard Steidl himself oversees every step of the production, from layout to printing.
ARTBOOK|D.A.P. is America’s premier source for books on twentieth-century and contemporary art, photography, architecture and visual culture. Founded in 1990 as Distributed Art Publishers, the company provides exclusive trade sales and marketing to an array of the world’s most respected publishers, museums and cultural institutions. ARTBOOK, the company's retail division, runs bookstores at MoMA P.S.1, the Walker Art Center and numerous art fairs and pop up venues nationwide.
