Chronicle Books is an independent publisher based in San Francisco that has been making things since the Summer of Love. We are inspired by the enduring magic of books, and by sparking the passions of others.
As soon as you pick up our publishing, we want you to be able to tell that what you're holding comes from us. We consider every detail, and ask questions like these: does the design support and enhance the content? How does it feel in your hands? What special touches can we add to make it an object you'll treasure? We apply this approach to everything we make, whether it’s a book, journal, game, ebook, or our newest invention.
Based in San Francisco, our headquarters are in an old maritime machine shop and warehouse. There are 4 floors: one for sales, marketing, and operations, one for editorial and contracts, another for design and production, and meeting space where we all come together. There’s even a storefront you can visit. Stop by the next time you’re in town and bring your favorite tote, or take home one of ours.
