Antenne Books is a distributor for independent publishers. Established in London in 2010, Antenne Books distributes publications on art, photography, design, illustration, theory, writing, fashion and culture.
In the last decade, independent publishing rapidly grew, with many emerging publishers utilising new technologies and the ability to produce books on small scales and at low costs. Antenne Books was realised as a distribution platform against this background, initiated to support the large growth of these emerging publishers, who at the time had limited means to distribute their work using traditional models of book distribution. Antenne Books began by working with publishers Aki Books, Hassla, Nieves, Seems and The Institute of Social Hypocrisy, introducing retailers to publications that had, until then, rarely been available in Europe. Antenne Books now represents publishers from the UK, Europe, USA and Japan and distributes to a wide selection of bookshops and specialist retailers worldwide.
AntenneBooks.com is both an online shop and living archive of the Antenne Books distribution catalogue, which features a wide selection of artist publications, photobooks, magazines, rare and out-of-print publications, monographs and more. Titles are available from leading photobook publishers Loose Joints, Libraryman, Edition Patrick Frey, RVB and Osiris. Also available are titles from major artist book publishers Printed Matter, Apartamento Publishing, Primary Information and InOtherWords and magazines from The Gourmand, Riposte, Real Review, Buffalo Zine, Luncheon and Pleasure Garden.

'Don't Know What I Want But I Want It Now' is the first publication by London based photographer Ian Kenneth Bird. Over a two year period, Ian documented skateboarders of London, focussing on the faces behind the sport. These black and white portraits capture the easy air of confidence worn alongside the cuts and bruises synonymous with skateboarding.
