Chronicle Books to distribute stationery publisher Paperblanks
Established in Vancouver, Canada, in 1991 and now headquartered in Dublin, Paperblanks publishes journals and creative tools, with image art inspired by classic book binding design, literature, science, music, mysticism and creativity. In addition to its own product lines, Paperblanks has global co-branding partnerships with the Getty Museum and New York Public Library, as well as active licensing relationships with cultural institutions around the world, including the British Library, the V&A, the Van Gogh Museum and more.
Chronicle Books and its Canadian distributor Raincoast Books will sell approximately 50 new Paperblanks titles per season and a backlist of 1,200 titles.
