A luxurious coffee-table book of your collection
Publishing company, Longueville Media, and Guy Earl-Smith Art & Antiquity, present a bespoke publishing service for collectors.
Combining our expert knowledge of the art and publishing worlds, Guy Earl-Smith and Longueville Media are able to catalogue and present your collection as a beautiful book. The full-colour hardback book will be created to the highest standards of editorial and design.
What better way to have your collection recorded and preserved than in a beautiful coffee-table book that you and your family can treasure. You have spent a number of years or perhaps even a life time building a collection of art. This book will preserve your love of collecting and tell the story of how your collection came to be.
Expert editorial, beautiful design
Your book may be as personal as you wish and in a design to suit your taste.
To add to the descriptions and technical details of your art we are able to commission specialist art historians to write about particular pieces in your collection. If you wish, we will interview you and write the story of your collection.
A personal or public record
We can create a book just for you, or perhaps you wish to go to a wider audience by assigning an ISBN (International Standard Book Number) so that copies are lodged with the The National Library of Australia and State Libraries around the country.
No matter the readership you choose, the book becomes an important document that records provenance of the works. This will be indispensable for future plans you may have for the collection. Furthermore, your book will be a valuable document for insurance purposes.
A rewarding experience
Whichever direction you choose, we ensure you that it will be a rewarding experience resulting in a beautifully-crafted work of art, in its own right.
