Small, Pennslyvania-based book publisher Gottund Verlag publishes innovative books by emerging and mid-career artists.

Gottund might sound familiar because they also published Coley Brown’s photo book Jam Jelly Honey Wild Rice.  Brown was Ryan McGinley’s assistant before he was discovered and is now a photographer and model.  Sounds like a sweet deal to me.

The below images are from Kasane Nogawa’s book Above Below and Andreas Banderas‘s and Nicholas Gottund‘s book U Tell Me.  Quietly powerful books that leaves me thinking.Kasane Nogawa book Above Below by Gottlund Verlag
