Mousse

Founded in 2006 with Mousse Magazine, Mousse Publishing grew out of the demand felt in the sector for a new attitude towards art publishing. The underlying idea was to give every collaborative project (with museums, institutions, fairs, galleries, artists and curators) the originality, care and attention that have always distinguished the publisher's high-quality work.
