About Grandin Hood

Memorable photography, writing, and design are the defining hallmarks of Grandin Hood books.

Founded in 1994 by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Robin Hood, Grandin Hood Publishers has established a national reputation for producing award-winning and visually stunning coffee table books. Our successful projects include custom books for a diverse list of national organizations to use as marketing tools, sources of fundraising, and as business and alumni gifts.

Grandin Hood books exceed dry compendiums of historic chronology, and are inspiring presentations of the tradition, locations, and people that are an organization’s image. With compelling content, visual style, and finest production standards, we celebrate the history and convey the continuing stories of corporations, universities, and foundations.

Regardless of the size of the organization, or the focus of their story, Grandin Hood brings that story to life in a visually engaging and memorable edition… one, which is treasured by its recipients for years to come.


Grandin Hood’s founders, staff, and Advisory Board include award-winning writers, photographers, and designers.
