Andrew Hoyem founded Arion Press in 1974. Considered one of the most accomplished printers of today, Hoyem is also a published poet and exhibited artist who occasionally includes his own writings and drawings in Arion books. The concepts for all Arion publications originate with Hoyem, who chooses literary texts, commissions new work from writers and artists he admires, and designs the books, including their bindings and typography.
Art Rogers has been helping families tell their stories with photographs since 1975. In his Point Reyes Station studio and in the homes and gardens of those he pictures, he crafts museum-quality portraits to capture the special moments every family cherishes. By returning to photograph the same people in the same setting years later, he helps create family history in a very personal way. These portraits transform yesterday and today into stories about generations. The result is a work of art that celebrates change and preserves the passage of time.
