Clearview Books was founded by Catharine Snow in 2010 and specializes in beautiful illustrated (and some non-illustrated) books about food, architecture, interior design, photography and travel. Simonne Waud joined Catharine in 2013. We like to work with authors who are experts in their field, have a passion for their subject and can convey an authoritative view as a result, but in a relaxed and easy way.

We are lucky to work with some of the world’s leading photographers and designers, as we believe that an illustrated book should aspire to the highest standards in every discipline, whether via its images, text or layout. Our books are built to last, but they are also built to inform, entertain and sometimes make you laugh (we like to include the things that went wrong sometimes, as well as the successes).
