TBOOKS was founded in March 2010 by COLOGNE-based artist (Tim).
Totally dedicated to the artists' publication as an alternative form of exhibition, TBOOKS offers a platform for "the little paperproject". TBOOKS COLOGNE publishes short-run artists' books and limited edition zines.
Everything is going more virtual these days. TBOOKS stays paper. So you'll never find a publication online. The publications are handmade in alternative print techniques and usually come in numbered editions of 100.


(Tim) lives, dances and draws in Cologne, Germany. He has a passion for books, zines and paper. If you've got any questions or would like to submit your paperproject or just want to write him some lines,- feel free to do so!
(Tim) currently stays in the Blue Hotel next to Villiers Terrace:
