MACK is an independent publisher of award-winning books on contemporary art, critical theory, film and architecture. We work with pioneering creative minds and institutions across the globe and pride ourselves on the rigour and care that goes into every stage of the book-making process.

In 2010, our founder Michael Mack set out to build a publishing house that engages in critical dialogues around visual culture in beautifully designed editions. In the early years we focused predominately on photography, quickly becoming the home for work by leading practitioners including Thomas Demand, Roe Ethridge, Jim Goldberg, Guido Guidi, Luigi Ghirri, Paul Graham, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Collier Schorr, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Solomon, Alec Soth, Larry Sultan, as well as debuts which launched the careers of numerous artists, including Sofia Borges, Gregory Halpern, Joanna Piotrowska and RaMell Ross.

We have grown to become the experimental space for authors across disciplines, where a handbook on post-carbon architecture can sit happily alongside a collection of essays on modernist painting, a facsimile collection of Francesca Woodman’s remarkable artist’s books, a conversation between a psychoanalyst and a violinmaker, and a career-defining monograph by Deana Lawson, Tacita Dean, or Sofia Coppola.

Our rich cultural programme reflects the variety of our publishing. We run talks, lectures, and workshops in venues and institutions across the world, including our own bookshops in Berlin and Los Angeles. Our online platform MACK LIVE presents exclusive studio tours, talks, panel discussions, and videos exploring the design and materiality of our books in detail.
