CATALOGUE 2017 - 2018

·M · We love paper. We are drawn to beautiful things. We read, write and draw whatever we feel like. We smell books, even the ones that aren’t old. We’re crazy about bookshops and libraries. If it has talent, we publish it. Our books are for children... are they?... that’s up to you


Non fiction project Little but with big ideas, we only have two rules: an extreme care of our aesthetic criteria and high quality illustrated books. From here on, we have decided to debunk some clichĂŠs. If we spot talent and art, we feel that we have to share it. We want to move you and, since we are pathologically restless, we create books for curious and creative minds.


Don’t let us tell you the entire story. Become the author. Imagine and create stories for our pages. Play with your imagination and reach as far as you’d like. Beauty is not trivial. We are strongly committed to beautiful things. Art, look and style for all ages. Everyday things are the most extraordinary ones.

We are colour and drawing lovers.

We like turning normal things into amazing experiences that can make us travel around the word.

Disorganization is not chaos. Chaos can only be managed by a genius. Open our books on any page. Put the book aside for a while and discover it again. Re-read them again and again.

The four corners of the globe are our white pages.
