About us

Laurel Parker Book is a hybrid space devoted to artists’ books, at the crossroads of design studio, fabrication workshop, and art gallery.

Since 2008, Laurel Parker Book has been designing books, boxes, and artists’ multiples for artists and publishers, as well as for agencies, luxury houses, institutions, and the private sector. Our craft binding workshop is dedicated to artistic creation, beautiful presentation, and the conservation of artistic and heritage works.

Since 2018, Laurel Parker Edition has been publishing contemporary art in multiples, always keeping in mind the book-object and the handmade object.

In 2020, the studio joined their colleagues at Komunuma, adding to their workshop space a gallery–bookshop–library : Artist Book Space.

Following their residency at the Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto, Laurel Parker Book has developed Folded By Hand : artworks and surfaces in washi (Japanese artisanal paper) using traditional treatments. These objects - a mixture of Japanese techniques and French savoir-faire - are intended for decoration and interior design.
