New Publisher on the Publisher's Showcase: Seems

For years now, thanks to the suggestion of Mr. Darius Himes, photo-eye has been showcasing a wonderful list of photobook publishers on the Bookstore page. This feature is appropriately called Publisher's Showcase and includes publisher’s whose books are part of our curated selection. The list includes publishers who have published more than one title and only their photobooks. We try to enter all publishers as we discover them but we occasionally miss a few. If you would like to suggest a publisher whose books we carry but who is missing from the list, please email us!

One of our newest additions that we’d like to point out is Seems. Please find their logo, mission statement and a few of the books they have published shown below.  

Seems is an independent publisher of small-run art books based in New York. Our goal is to make original art accessible to everyone. We create books that start dialog and conversation, with a high priority placed on quality and content. We publish a hybrid of zines and monographs, with each book in a solo show format: one artist with a free reign throughout. The name Seems comes from the idea that art and design are not black and white, but gray; there is no absolute; therefore they demand dialog and debate. Seems has also participated in book exhibitions in South Africa, Italy, Canada, Greece, Germany, Spain, and New York.
