Since 2006, the studio Laurel Parker Book has been working with artists and book publishers on artist book projects. Collaborations with the publishers Christophe Daviet-Thery, mfc Michèle Didier, Rosascape, and Toluca Editions are with international artists : Fragments of Travel, Exploration, and Adventure, by Mark DionInside the White Cube, Édition Fantôme, by Yann SérandourSabotage by Charline Von Heyl, By and To Jockum by Jockum Nordström, 1001 nuits + 1 jour, by Yona Friedman, Inventario, by Oscar Muñoz, among others.

In order to prepare the production of large editions, the studio creates prototypes used as important models for publishers and their associates. In collaboration with the Editions Xavier Barral, the studio has created the prototypes for : A Criminal Investigation by Watabe Yukichi, co-published by Le Bal and Life's a Beach by Martin Parr, co-published by the Aperture Foundation.

The studio's clients are independent artists et photographers, as well as fashion houses, agencies, publishers, and public institutions. 
Our work is handmade, using a mix of time-honored craft and new technologies. The studio adapts to the projects on hand - big or small. We call on other craftspeople qualified in conservation, bookbinding, and applied arts, to work with us on the various projets that come through our doors. We work with various materials, always the best quality possible and chosen especially for each project. Our suppliers of papier, cloth, and leather are European and our collaborators are artisans in the Paris metropolitan area.
