Hol Art Books
Hol Art Books is an independent press dedicated to publishing and promoting exceptional writing on visual art as a means of engaging readers with art objects and art spaces in the real world. We publish classic works of art criticism and history; artist texts and biographies; and the best of contemporary writing, including fiction, non-fiction and works in translation.
Hol publishes in print and, increasingly, in e-books. Thoughtfully crafted, encryption-free and modestly priced, our multi-format e-book program brings the best art literature from Hol authors and other independent publishers to art lovers everywhere.
Hol is overseen by managing editor, Leah Triplett (@leah_triplett). Triplett is a writer, editor and reader specializing in modern and contemporary art. She is a broad reader, but her most beloved art books are ones that seamlessly fuse the pleasures of reading and looking. Outside of Hol, she is blog editor of Big, Red and Shiny. Email Triplett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hol Art Books was founded in 2007 by Greg Albers who served as publisher until November 2013 when he stepped aside to take a position as Digital Publications Manager at the J. Paul Getty Trust. Albers is a principal contributor to the museum publishing website Beyond the Printed Page, and his speaking engagements include the Museum Computer Network, American Alliance of Museums, Art Libraries Society of North America, and Books in Browsers. Albers is also the creator of The People's E-Book, a free online e-book creation tool developed with The Present Group and slated to launch in 2013.
