We established our publishing arm, Ormond Yard Press, in order to bring you the bigger picture—literally.
Our aim is to focus on a key moment or personality in the history of popular culture, and showcase the work of a photographer at the very top of his or her profession. Layouts and presentations are designed to let images shine, in a clean, uncluttered style. Less is definitely more.
Neil Young’s comment on the future of books in Waging Heavy Peace pretty much sums up what Ormond Yard Press is all about: “Things are changing. I have faith that there is a place for tactile art like physical books and album covers and think that we will settle into something new, but recognisable. I do think that the future for books is in the over-the-top quality printing, paper, photography, and binding. The high price of that quality may enable the survival of the printed and bound hardcover book.”
Ultra-large format 18 x 24 inches
Over the years, we have published a series of elegant, ultra-large-format limited edition books. Our early publications were made in a very large physical size—18 x 24 inches when closed, 36 x 24 inches when open. Much larger than traditional coffee table volumes, they are slim and elegant at the same time. Presented in a handsome slipcase, each book looks like a work of art you could hang on your wall. And actually, you can, as we have developed a slide in/slide out transparent acrylic display unit for you to do just that.
Regular format 12 x 12 inches
In 2020 we began publishing a series of smaller scale limited edition hardcover books, measuring 12 x 12 inches, each housed in a presentation box with a separate limited edition 12 x 12 inch photograph suitable for framing.
You can see both types of book below, starting with the more recent 12 x 12 inch format.
