Coloring books

Since 2010, the Fondation Cartier has been publishing coloring books for children, designed in close collaboration with an artist as part of an exhibition. Whether they are illustrators, painters, sculptors, filmmakers, or even designers, the artists lend themselves to create a series of all-new drawings directly inspired by their works or stemming from a special order. These coloring books offer children the opportunity to discover the graphic world of an artist, while calling on their imagination and creativity to make the artist’s work their own.

Limited edition works

The Fondation Cartier also creates limited edition works with its artists: Takeshi Kitano’s animal vases, David Lynch’s lithographs, Andrea Branzi’s artist’s book, and even Daido Moriyama’s lithographs. These limited edition works can be discovered in the Fondation Cartier bookstore.

Art Books

Whether designed simultaneously with an exhibition or the result of a special order, the coffee table books published by the Fondation Cartier offer a unique opportunity to discover a new aspect of an artist’s work.
