ABOUT

1984 Publishing brings premium, hardbound, full color art and gift books to coffee tables worldwide. Smart non-fiction and fiction titles are also a priority for the imprint.

Founder Matthew Chojnacki wrote three award-winning art books of his own, Alternative Movie Posters: Film Art from the Underground (volumes I and II), plus the '80s vinyl cover art book Put the Needle on the Record: The 1980s at 45 Revolutions per Minute.

Chojnacki has more than 20 years of business experience, and recently helped produce several 2016/2017 documentaries, including 24 x 36: A Movie about Movie Posters30 Years of Garbage: The Garbage Pail Kids Story, the LGBT doc Scream Queen! My Nightmare on Elm Street, the political music film Beyond Barricades, and Yoghurt Utopia (about a maverick Spanish psychiatrist and his patients, who broke out of an asylum and into big business). 

Without artists, art books wouldn't exist. 1984 Publishing is proud to offer all authors profit sharing rather than the industry standard of $1 to $2 USD per book in royalties. We cut the typical big business overhead, creating win-win offers.   

We welcome book proposals. Please drop us a line at proposals@1984publishing.com.
