CIRCLE BOOKS merges the too-often separate worlds of academic and independent arts publishing with rigorously conceived, but accessible content. Our content is research based, stemming from close collaboration with artists, archives, and writers. Our work comes from an underlying passion, not only for art and the artists that make it, but also for the book as a unique object.
CIRCLE refers to the short-lived, but influential 1937 mouthpiece of International Constructivism. This reference underlines the holistic, integrated nature of our approach–Circle the journal was edited by artists Ben Nicholson and Naum Gabo, and designed by sculptor Barbara Hepworth–and our desire for our publications to be intellectually rigorous and historically informed.
