A San Francisco-based independent publisher, Chronicle Books was founded in 1969. Inspired by the enduring magic of books, the company partners with artists, writers and organizations representing the world’s diversity; it is committed to an inclusive culture that respects and uplifts people of varying backgrounds and points of view. In adding to its portfolio, Chronicle Books considers every detail: 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? It applies this approach to all of its products, including book and ebooks, journals and games.
