Soberscove Press is an an independent press that publishes books about art and culture. Soberscove was founded by Julia Klein in 2009 with a focus on making art historical materials accessible to a non-specialist audience; this concern continues in the books we publish today. Soberscove books tend to explore modes and functions of documentation, process, and connect historical themes and issues to the present. We also produce books in collaboration with artists.
