We just received the very first copy of the In Place book and IT IS GORGEOUS!
Thanks to everyone that was involved in making this happen!


In coordination with the In Place: Wish You Were Here Exhibition (Opening on August 23rd) we have created a stunning 80 page, perfect-bound, limited edition art book. Each one is signed and numbered - and absolutely incredible.

Here is a link to the pre-order if you're interested in checking it out!
The book is $25 and features the work of 50 international illustrators, visual development artists, and creatives came together for this project - where wide-format style illustrations span the pages alongside stories of each exotic location's cultural nuances, historical highlights and folkloric stories.

We have been working like crazy over the last couple months, pouring over places, working with artists, and finally getting everything together and after long hours of research, writing, revision and design! One of our objectives with this project was to show the beauty of the spaces and places around us. Considering that we have been huge advocates of connecting artists from all ends of the Earth - it was only natural that we spend some time bringing a project to life that allows us to discover and explore some of the most exotic and interesting spaces!

Our second objective was to not just show the beauty of each place, but really share information about them that you might not know: the hidden bits of information that have been buried by time!

We had the pleasure of working with Award Winning Arctic Explorer, Lonnie Dupre, known for his expeditions through Greenland via dogsled and his participation in two National Geographic documentaries (among many other honors) for the forward of the book -- he creates an inspiring introduction to a book that aims to bring out the explorer in all of us.

"From mountain peaks to lost islands at the bottom of the sea, In Place is a collection of artwork that delves into many of the most significant, sublime, and unbelievable places on Earth. Featuring the work of fifty contemporary illustrators, designers, and creatives, this collaborative project aims to create a greater understanding of the places we live in and dream of." --- From the front cover
