SPQR Editions, LLC is a publisher of curated photography books based in Brooklyn, NY
Twenty years ago, renowned photographer Thomas Roma sat in the office of the late, legendary W.W. Norton editor James L. Mairs with an advanced copy of his first monograph, Found in Brooklyn (an homage to his hometown), that Mairs would soon publish. Inside Mairs’ office, teeming with books piled high, he told Roma that he believed the book “would have a long life.” The idea of a book having a life of it's own beyond the existence and intentions of the author resonated with Roma and left an indelible impression visible in Roma's fourteen subsequent publications.
The launch of SPQR Editions recalls this story, with Roma now in the role of publisher and able to use his twenty years of experience editing, sequencing, and being on press for his own publications to inform the creation of these new books for others.
