Guest Editions is a new publishing house created by Studio Thomas. Working closely with artists to create unique printed projects, which share a vision, question or story.
Our aim was to create a publishing platform that challenged the traditional publisher/artist relationship we had experienced, which was much more skewed to the publisher’s motives and less towards the vision and ideas of the artist. We wanted to create a place for genuine collaboration, not just as a buzzword, but as a way of really understanding what the artist is trying to communicate, and finding a way of amplifying that through a design and printed project. That is what lead us to Guest Editions, we are imagining we are all guests, the artist is a guest of the platform, but we as publishers as well as the reader are all guests in the artist’s world. It’s about sharing in a vision and in that other place that has been captured.
