X Artists’ Books Publishes Courageous, Beautiful Books for Curious Readers


Established in 2017, XAB is a small publisher of thoughtful, high-quality, artist-centered books that fit within and between genres. Our books are works of art; portals to imagined worlds; treasured companions; the fabric of a community. We love the same things about our books as we do about our friends: generosity, open-heartedness, intelligence, mystery, style. They bring sustenance and shift realities. They may occasionally break your heart.

X is a connection, a multiplier, a kiss, a proxy. X is a signature, a mark; it stands for treasure, uncharted territory, the core of infinity. X is mysterious and surprising. X attracts and repels; X learns from correction. X marks the spot.

Books to me are portals to the unknown—a place where the mind can rest and rage simultaneously. Books make the future imaginable and the past tolerable. They widen the scope of human existence by telling individual stories of grace, strength, wit and sadness. They make me want to live deeper and better.
— Eve Wood

X Artists’ Books does not accept unsolicited submissions. We’re a small team publishing a limited selection of books each year, and just don’t have space in the program for everything we’d like to do.

Please be aware that submissions by email will not be answered; hard copies of manuscripts or art will not be returned.

We salute your energy and creativity—we appreciate your thinking of us for your new project—and we wish you all the best in finding the right home for your book.
