Our team includes specialists in art, culture, music, book trade and media but in spite of our diversity we have one common ground: the enthusiasm for unique art books.
We purchase remaining stocks from museums, publishers and art institutions. We sell these remainders to bookstores, museum shops, and art dealers all over the world.

As a budding photographer and oenophile in the 1940s, Fred Lyon surveyed the wine photography of the day and thought, "I can do better than that!" What followed was a seven-decade adventure that took him to the world's great wine regions-to French chateaux, the verdant slopes of Chile, and the picturesque wineries of Italy, Greece, Portugal, and beyond - always returning to the breathtaking Napa and Sonoma vineyards that lie just over the bridge from his San Francisco home.
Lyon's keen eye illuminates moments both grand and intimate that define the world of winemaking: families turning out for the harvest, a horse pulling a sled of freshly picked grapes, a midmorning workers' break to enjoy bread and cheese. Vineyards is a delightful gift for wine lovers, foodies, and armchair travelers.
