Starting in 1986, Edition Patrick Frey has published more than 280 books until today. Collaborating closely with mainly Swiss but also international artists, the publishing house focuses on unique projects and produces books in small print runs.
The purpose of Edition Patrick Frey is to provide particularly young artists an opportunity and a platform with a first publication, but the publishing house has also been engaged in long-term collaborations with several artists such as Walter Pfeiffer, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, and Andreas Züst. With an output of up to 20 books per year, the publisher focuses mainly on photography, art and projects dealing with everyday and popular culture.
