About Beam Editions


See More

Beam Editions publishes books on contemporary and modern art. With every book we place the artwork centre stage and build a compelling narrative about the artists and their ideas, so ultimately, the reader can see more.

We value high design and production standards, and writing that is serious, accessible and creative.


Work with us

All of our projects are designed in-house and developed in partnership with galleries, artists, estates or publishers.

We often work as part of a curatorial team during the planning of books and exhibitions. We visit artists studios, review exhibition content and become part of the dialogue – revealing the details that make all the difference. 


Our history

Beam Editions is the publishing arm of J & O Studio led by designers Jonathan Casciani and Oliver Wood.

Having worked with artists, galleries and museums for over 20 years we decided to pursue and launch Beam Editions, a design and publishing business with a singular focus on producing highly considered catalogues, monographs and artists books.
