Antenne Books brings independent publishers to the book trade. Established in London in 2010, Antenne Books handles publications on art, photography, design, illustration, theory, writing, fashion and culture.
In the last decade, independent publishing has grown rapidly, with many emerging publishers utilising new technologies and the ability to produce books on small scales and at low costs. Antenne Books was realised as a distribution platform against this background, initiated to support the large growth of these emerging publishers, who at the time had limited means to distribute their work using traditional models of book distribution. Antenne Books began by working with publishers Aki Books, Hassla, Nieves, Seems and The Institute of Social Hypocrisy, introducing retailers to publications that had, until then, rarely been available in Europe. Antenne Books now represents publishers from the UK, Europe, USA and Japan.
The Antenne Books list features a wide selection of artist publications, photobooks, magazines, rare and out-of-print publications, monographs and more. Titles are available from leading photobook publishers Little Brown Mushroom, Libraryman, Pierre von Kleist, Patrick Frey, Archive of Modern Conflict, Bookshop M, Getsuyosha, Eyesencia and Osiris. Also available are titles from major artist book publishers Printed Matter, Primary Information and Karma and magazines from The Gourmand, Riposte, Wrap, Inventory, Noble Rot, Brownbook, Kaleidoscope and The Happy Reader.
