An independent publisher of books on art and culture
Laboratory Books is a trade publisher concerned with new approaches to art and culture. We will publish six to eight titles per year, principally in the fall season. Some of our books will add an unexpected intellectual or aesthetic dimension to a familiar publishing category; others will bring to light curious things from the archives; and a few, we hope, will even draw attention to important subjects that have hitherto remained unpublished. All of our books will be carefully designed, and most will be illustrated, some in color. They will always be substantive, but never dry—in fact, they will make excellent gifts.
