Tra Publishing creates beautifully crafted books that celebrate art in all its forms, as well as its creators.

Tra Publishing was founded in 2016 with the mission of creating books that inspire social, cultural, or environmental awareness through the arts. Tra works closely with artists, crafting each book with exquisite detail, making it a work of art in itself. Formed by Swiss-born graphic designer and author Ilona Oppenheim, Tra stands on 15 years of design excellence through Ilona Studio, Oppenheim’s creative consultancy firm.

Once a book is completed, Tra further nurtures the relationship with artists by devising strategic communication and distribution plans. The ability to work directly with artists allows Tra to produce unique events that promote their book and bring to life their work in the form of carefully curated exhibitions at galleries and museums, book launches, conversations with curators and collectors at book stores and private venues. In addition, through community workshops the audience is able to engage with the artists to garner a greater understanding of their vision. 


“In today’s world of excess and technology, the tactile process of holding and reading a book is a mindful experience that creates a real connection to life.”

– Ilona Oppenheim, Publisher & Creative Director
