GLORIA is an intercontinental publishing platform that focusses on the publication of art and photography books. Our practice approaches the production of the book as a complete process; from concept to design to print. The artist is heavily involved in every step, producing objects that are a full expression of their intention.

GLORIA is run by Berlin-based photographer Alice Connew and Auckland-based graphic designer Katie Kerr.

Calling all artists who use the book format as a medium of experimentation. We are searching for the next title to bring into our fold as a Guest of GLORIA. Every three months we feature a guest publication from an artist who embraces and explores of the full-arch of bookmaking — from conception and research to the weaving of narrative to production and distribution. Sound like something you’ve done? We want to see!

As a Guest of GLORIA your book will be featured on our channels and included as part of our canon for future book fairs and events. In our modest capacity, we would like to manifest our ethos of collaboration by supporting and championing other self-publishers, bringing them into the bosom of our international collective.

To find out more about the kind of titles we’re after, read through our collaboration outlines and take a look at our current collection.

Don’t be shy now. Get in our bosom.
