Tra Publishing creates beautifully crafted books that celebrate art in all its forms.

 
 
 

At Tra, our mission is to create books that inspire social, cultural or environmental awareness through the arts. Our goal is to create books that are a work of art in themselves; beyond representing an artist’s portfolio, we hope that the book itself becomes a new mode of artist expression.
