UNICORN CHICAGO SIGNS TOM CHAMBERS RETROSPECTIVE AS FIRST US ACQUISITION
Unicorn, the visual art imprint of Unicorn Publishing Group LLP is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with award-winning photographer Tom Chambers to publish a retrospective of his work in 2018.
Chambers, who lives in Richmond, Virginia, is well-known and widely collected for his dreamlike photomontages sharing intriguing unspoken stories which reflect his view of the world and elicit feelings in the viewer. His work has won multiple awards and is shown in galleries and exhibitions worldwide.
The title is the first acquired by Unicorn's Chicago office which was opened by the publisher's partner and Director, North America, Don Linn, in May and represents Unicorn's foray into North American markets on the acquisition side. Unicorn's titles are distributed by the University of Chicago press's Chicago Distribution Center.
Linn said, We are excited to begin our publishing program here with such a talented artist as Tom Chambers, whose work I've known and admired for years. This will be the first time his amazing photomontages will have been collected in one place and it will be a title designed not only for his many current fans and collectors, but also as an opportunity for others to see and enjoy his work. This is a great start for our North American program and represents the quality we expect to build on going forward.
Chambers added, I am excited and honored that my nine photographic series created over
twenty years will be presented through a high-quality Unicorn Publishing Group publication.
