Chronicle Books is an independent publisher based in San Francisco that has been making things since the Summer of Love. They are inspired by the enduring magic of books, and by sparking the passions of others. 

As soon as you pick up their publishing, they want you to be able to tell that what you're holding comes from them. They 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? They apply this approach to everything they make, whether it’s a book, journal, game, ebook, or their newest invention.
