Self-publishing


Roberts Print

Set up in 2009, Roberts Print is Richard's own eponymously-titled imprint. The books he self-publishes range from one-off artist books to larger edition publications. His books are in a number of collections including the Tate Library and Archive, the Chelsea College of Art and Design Library - Artists' Books Collection, and the Bower Ashton Library, UWE. A selection of his books are stocked at Printed Matter, Inc, a bookstore in New York dedicated to the dissemination of artists' books. In 2019, Richard's book Tower Block was among 50 books selected for the Prix Bob Calle du livre d'artiste.
