What is 279 Editions?
279 Editions is a publishing house that produces books of visual arts and graphic design. Every book is a genuine artistic and editorial project that highlights the talent of one or more creative figures, presented in a refined publication with distinctive design language. Every 279 Editions project-book is printed and bound using sophisticated techniques of extremely high quality, as well as being published in small runs which are often limited and/or numbered. In addition, 279 Editions offers a very select collection of artistic prints, signed and numbered by the creator.

What does 279 mean?
279 is a project that springs from Franco Cervi's love for art and design. It is his personal creative vision and gets its name from his favorite Pantone color that match his date of birth (27th September).

What does Franco Cervi do at 279 Editions?
Franco Cervi is a designer who has created a means of presenting his graphic design works without having to water them down with editorial and commercial compromises. As the publisher, editor and creative director of 279 Editions, in addition to offering his own personal projects, he selects artists whose work he wishes to produce and who will make regular contributions to the expression of a rich, distinctive and refined creative vision.

How is 279 Editions different from other publishers in the sector?
279 Editions believes in quality: every book published, as well as being an original product in every way, always features a concept, development and attention to detail that are highly characteristic in artistic and editorial terms.
