Company History 

One of the most admired and respected independent publishing companies in the U.S., Chronicle Books was founded in 1967, and over the years has developed a reputation for award-winning, innovative books. The children's list, launched in 1988, has grown to include not only traditional picture books but affordable paperbacks, board books, plush toys, and novelty merchandise. Chronicle Books launched its gift division in 1992 to develop products such as the best-selling Griffin & Sabine epistolary novels and the popular 52 Deck series.

Today Chronicle’s list includes titles in art & design, entertainment, food & drink, and lifestyle.  The company continues to challenge conventional publishing wisdom, setting trends in both subject and format.  They are inspired by the enduring magic of books, and by sparking the passions of others.
