Rim Books is an artist run, artist/author focused publishing venture established in 1996 in Auckland, Aotearoa/ New Zealand to produce and promote publications of photographic art, applied arts, art history and exhibition catalogues, that may not easily be taken on by more mainstream publishers.

Our aim is to retain the original vision of the authors/artists, while providing support for editing, design and production to ensure enduring, high quality publications, without the constraints of commercial agendas.

We are a small operation based in a small city in a small country, relying on networks of regional and international artists and authors who project, preserve and foster the independent voice intended for a world-wide audience.
