Founded in 1967 in San Francisco, Chronicle Books is one of my favorite publishers back from my days of working in a library. Chronicle Books is probably best known for its visual art & design titles, but in recent years they have published some unexpected mainstream successes including the Griffin & Sabine trilogy by Nick Bantock and The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook. Chronicle Books has been very good to indie artists recognizing the talent of & publishing books by Jill Bliss, Lotta Jansdotter, Jenny Hart and Julie Jackson among others. To me, their Mission Statement sums it up best, “Inspired by the enduring magic and importance of books, our objective is to create and distribute exceptional publishing that’s instantly recognizable for its spirit, creativity, and value.”
Chronicle Books is having a Friends & Family Sale right now. Use the code FRIENDS over at chroniclebooks.com and save 30% off all books and receive free shipping until August 3rd. I got a jump on my Christmas shopping and bought a bunch of books myself.
