About

Robert and Christopher Publishers is a small and ambitious illustrated art book imprint based in Trinidad and Tobago.  Our primary concern in our contemporary art series is to produce quality books that document and elucidate our Caribbean story as seen through the eyes of Caribbean artists. We aim to produce the highest quality of relevant books that will be accessible to a wide reading and creative audience, in Trinidad and Tobago, the Caribbean and internationally.
