Hyphen Press

Hyphen Press publishes books on design – in the largest sense of the word. Situated in London, our books are mostly produced on the European continent, in the attempt to find good standards of industrial craft. We cherish writing that is lively, precise, free of jargon; pictures that are realistic, vivid. We try to make books that are good for the reader.
