So who or what are Genesis Publications?
In the late 19th century, under the influence of William Morris, the private press flourished in Britain, creating books that were works of art in themselves. Similarly inspired, Genesis Publications was founded as an independent publishing house true to the arts of printing and craftsmanship.
In an interview with The New York Times, Genesis' late founder Brian Roylance commented, "I don't know of many people who go to this much trouble to produce a book anymore. But I think there is a future for it." Inspired by this idea, Genesis is proud to create some of the most sought after books in the world.

Amazing 1996 UK pair of limited edition 122 page hardback books by Genesis Publications. In 1964, Max Scheler & Astrid came to London to watch the Beatles filming A Hard Day's Night & the photographic journey that they made then is the basis for these magnificent books, with introduction by Astrid. Each copy is personally signed & numbered by Astrid Kirchherr and Max Scheler, master-printed in black and gold & hand-bound in black buckram with one of five photographs mounted on the front. The books are then housed in a sturdy two-colour silk-screened buckram slip case. In addition, this set comes with the extremely limited edition individually numbered outer slipcase box designed to hold both volumes. A fantastic pair of books to the high quality that we have come to take for granted from Genesis!)
