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, Berenice Abbott, Ed Ruscha, William Eggleston and Karl Lagerfeld, among many others. Gerhard Steidl 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.


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. Strand Book Store was born in 1927 by Ben Bass at the age of twenty-five when he sought to create a place where books would be loved, and book lovers could congregate. He named the Strand after the London Street where avant-garde writers like Thackeray, Dickens, and Mill once gathered and interesting book publishers thrived. Eighty-eight years and 18 miles of books later, the Strand is still run by the Bass family and is home to four floors of over 2.5 million used, new, and rare books, a wide array of bookish gifts and goods, and fun literary events held almost every night of the week.
