Olo

Olo is a Paris-based book packager, with a formidable track record working for publishers such as Prestel, Ullman, MairDumont, Vivays Publishing, Editions de la Martiniere, Gallimard and Hachette. Their first title, published in 2007, was the inimitable Poker: The Ultimate Book. It typifies the upbeat, magazine-influenced pace and layout, and the varied imagery and text, that characterise Olo books.

A recent big success for Olo has been 1000 Football Shirts, now sold in fourteen countries, and 1000 Football Clubs, published next spring, promises to be equally successful. The 50 Maps series has won interest and admirers around the world: it breaks the mould of city guides. 1000 Great Sneakers surveys and celebrates an icon of our times. And Iconic takes icons, and celebrities, as its subject. The Museum series has been another big success for Olo in recent years - the XXL Museum has joined Secrets, Scandals, Impossible and Illusions, further shaking up our ideas and making us re-think what museums are all about.

Olo Editions and the long-established and highly regarded French packager, Copyright, have now combined operations, and the list for 2015 is full of good things. You'll find covers for all the current and new titles below. For information sheets for all the new titles check out the brand new Olo/Copyright catalogue.
