Spaceheater Editions is a publishing press owned and operated by Philip Zimmermann. I have been making artists’ books and multiples under this imprint since early 1979. I produce open-edition and limited-edition works that use photography, printmaking and design. Although I have been making photographs, artists' books, prints, drawings, animations, and video since 1971, the main focus of Spaceheater Editions is the editioned narrative artists’ book. Under Spaceheater Editions (and several other press imprints) I publish my own books and posters as well as those of a number of exceptional artists. My own work deals with political, cultural and social issues in my life. Although there are many reöccuring themes in my books, they tend not to appear to have a common look or feel, since I try to approach each book I make in a fresh and exploratory way every time. The book form is an extraordinarily rich vehicle for investigating these concerns.
Spaceheater Editions started in Chicago, Illinois, spent many years in New York City and upstate New York, and now calls beautiful Tucson, Arizona home.
