Great looking stories

Visual Editions is a publisher based in London which is dedicated to the creation and production of beautifully crafted books that use visual writting. Founded in 2009, one VE's latest books includes The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Sterne. Originally published in the late 18th Century the book was briefed out to design studio, A Practice for Everyday Life, who were asked to 'breathe new life into the book's design' and add new visual elements. The result is a stunning and delightfully tactile version of the book, bringing it's contemporary nature into full view.

VE are about to publish a new re-imagining of the first ever 'book in a box' - Composition No.1 by Marc Saporta. Designed by Universal Everything, the book will work as per the previous editions. The book is presented in a box as loose leaves which the reader can read in any order they choose. Check back here to buy and find out more.

About us

As children we had the freedom of imagination and creativity with no boundaries. At school and as adults we are encouraged away from imagination and day dreaming, to think in a structured, process driven way. We disagree with this. We challenge this. Imagination and creativity are gifts that we are all given, and we can develop and encourage them, not throw them away. Free Thinking® is our approach to life, to creativity, to advertising campaigns, to graphic design. We challenge the way things are done, created, agreed, made.
