About

Overlapse is an independent visual arts and photobooks imprint based in London UK, founded in 2015 by publisher Tiffany Jones. We primarily publish books focused on storytelling. Our subjects and stories address social, cultural, and environmental issues, with themes connected to human experience. Through close collaboration with photographers and artists we create unique, desirable, and beautifully produced books.

Each book object has a distinctive balance between content and format that readers can connect with in meaningful ways. In a relatively short time, Overlapse books have gained an enthusiastic audience and received acclaim from critics and media.

Kind words about Overlapse books!

“One of our absolute favourite publishers is Overlapse – Beautifully made, unique books that are full of creativity and successful experimentation.”Photobook Junkies (on Instagram)

“It is a genuine pleasure to spend time with the publications, I really love the attention given to the reader’s experience and how tactile the books are.”Ellie Hopkins, photojournalism tutor

“I’ve acquired a few of Overlapse’s books, and my appreciation for Tiffany Jones’ [design] approach grows with each one… They’re smallish titles on uncoated stock, dense with visual material. Each one turns the spotlight on a cultural issue with historic tensions, then illustrates through a prism of photos, images, and text. These are multimedia books with a lot of moving parts and layered content.”Blake Andrews, photobook reviewer

We heart Polycopies!
“Outside on the deck people sit and drink beer. Down on the third deck is Anders Petersen who signs his latest book, Color Lehmitz, with a Spanish publisher. Here is also a relatively new publisher, which I consider to be one of the most interesting during this year’s great photo weekend in Paris [2017]. Overlapse Photobooks produces books that are superbly well-designed and contain absorbing stories.”Tommy Arvidson, Photobook collector, author of omfotoboken (Sweden)
