Four Corners Books are based in London. The small publishing house specializes in books about under-recognized, under-reported, and under-appreciated artists, movements, and theories. Works under their imprint include Come Alive! The Spirited Art of Sister Corita (2006) and Brian Wilson: An Art Book (2005).
They've now introduced the Familiars series, which pairs classic novels and short stories that have passed into the public domain with an artist's response to the text. Every book is of individual style and format, making each familiar feel like an entirely new object of desire. A truly exciting approach to the illustrated novel. Series designed by John Morgan; different artist for each title.
