Heartbeat Books was founded in Chicago, IL in February 2020 by four friends who started out as neighbors. After many iterations of the project, this effort has grown, morphed, changed into what it is today—an independent presse focused on producing artist books and art house films. Throughout this journey, we have remained dedicated to building a platform for artists around the world with a specific focus on supporting the creative community of the windy city. We believe in honoring the individual in order to empower the collective. Our mission is to put a microphone to stories that have been historically unheard. Tales that have yet to be told. Encouraging these music notes to form in unison catalyzing a cacophonous symphony.
