HOBERMAN is an award-winning publisher producing books unrivalled in the industry for quality and luxury finishes. Our books need to be seen and felt to be fully appreciated.

We published our first book, Cape Town, in 1996 at a time when the industry was “going cheaper” and cutting corners on quality and content. Our vision was to produce the finest book money could buy – we photographed Cape Town with passion and without the limit of a check-list, we sourced papers from France, Quarter binding cloth from Italy and Germany (which was hand-stiched), Art Papers for printed endpapers, pioneered Spot U.V Varnish finishing on ever page and printed every book under strict personal supervision. The result astonished the market and was a return to tactile quality so needed by the book reading public.

As one reviewer commented “Hoberman books don’t shout, they whisper”

Today, with over 75 books in our collection, we’ve never turned back on our vision and continue to produce luxury coffee table books, constantly with passion and curiosity improving our products in the pursuit of the perfect coffee table book.

We invite you to view our book range online and perhaps order yourself a copy to take part in the HOBERMAN experience!
