JRP|Ringier, formerly JRP Editions, is a Swiss publisher of high-quality books on contemporary art.

Founded by Lionel Bovier in Zurich, Switzerland, the company has more than 400 titles in active distribution worldwide, including artists’ books, monographs, exhibition’s catalogues, anthologies and books dedicated to writings by art critics and curators. It also publishes series from external associate editors, e.g., Christoph Keller Editions.

At the core of JRP|Ringier’s program lie the books by contemporary artists themselves: the artists’ books. JRP|Ringier has already published influential artists such as Fischli & Weiss, John Armleder, Isa Genzken, Richard Prince, John Baldessari, Mike Kelley, Wolfgang Tillmans, Elaine Sturtevant or Rodney Graham. However the publisher continues to support younger or still overlooked Swiss and international artists, including Urs Fischer, Valentin Carron, Sterling Ruby, Troy Brauntuch, Tony Oursler, Kelley Walker, Mai-Thu Perret or Cyprien Gaillard.

JRP|Ringier’s publications have won numerous design awards, including The Most Beautiful Swiss Book and Best Book Design from all over the World. While the Geneva-based studio Gavillet & Rust is responsible for the art direction, other renowned graphic designers such as Norm, M/M Paris, Cornel Windlin, Marie Lusa or Peter Saville have also contributed titles from JRP|Ringier’s catalogue.
