From the beginning they wanted to approach publishing from a different angle, to make beautiful design pieces which have a long life cycle and people enjoy after many years, not something that would have a sale sticker stamped on them within a few months. They want to create quality, which has to be seen in both the materials used and the beautiful content they and their authors create.
