Vedere Press

Formed in 2018, Vedere Press is a premier partner for artists of all kinds.

Over the years, we found that there just isn’t a great independent publishing solution for high-quality art and photography books. Many times, artists are forced to compromise their creative vision by enlisting a traditional publisher—while waiting months, sometimes years, for their book to be completed. If they decide to self-publish, they are often constrained by lackluster printing and design options and “one-size fits all” mentality of most independent publishing companies.

Vedere Press was created to showcase artists and businesses by designing, printing, and distributing beautiful, high-quality, coffee-table style books that stay true to the artist’s vision.
