About / Contact


TBW Books is an independent photography book publishing company founded in Oakland in 2006 by Paul Schiek. In 2024, we began a partnership with the Miner Anderson and Baker Street Foundations, who assist in enabling us to further champion the works of underrepresented artists. In 2023, TBW Books began its sister company Workshop de Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. 

TBW Books acknowledges that it occupies the unceded land of the Lisjan Ohlone people, also known as Oakland.
