arco137books is a recently launched publishing house based in Turin, Italy specialised in artist “books”.

We aim to support artists express their creative thinking through the book, reshaping it without limits.





Born from our wish to imprint curiosity in the world through tactile experiences, arco137books was founded in 2021.

At arco137books we aspire to bring artist “books” publishing into a new dimension by offering the opportunity for broader audiences to experience the full potential of artistic expression through printed paper.

We support artists with our expertise and present a full range of possibilities so that they can choose the most effective techniques to help bring their original vision to life throuhg the medium of the book.

For us, the artist book is an art practice in its own right. It is an artistic creation that can develop in a myriad of forms. With technique, approach and medium left to the artist's imagination, at arco137books, the artist book is a site for infinite possibility.





Our bookshop aims to be a fresh and dynamic space accessible to all.

A cosy space where visitors can have their curiosity triggered while being welcomed by an enthusiastic community.



In November 2022, arco137books will be lauching a new physical space located in the historical city centre of Turin, Italy a city with a strong artistic scene. The space will be designed for close encounters between books and community. As an open living-room.

After in-depth research driven by our passion for print,  we have curated a selection of art books, magazines and fanzines that we wish to showcase in our bookshop.  

Thanks to our roots in Turin, we have directly experienced the positive evolution of the city’s art scene in the last few years. We believe arco137books can contribute to this movement and build a community of passionates.



Bookshop launching in November.
