Úrsula books, the publisher

Úrsula is an independent publisher. First launched in 2013, in 2019 we reinvented ourselves. We are a team of professionals with long-established links to the world of the image, text and book publishing. We are interested in highlighting cultural heritage with a contemporary perspective. Art, architecture and landscape, but also writing and thought, give value to our books, which can include collections as required. We enjoy being a small, independent and collaborative publisher, regardless of the impositions of the ‘bigger market’. We continue to believe in the book as an object and in the great window to the world that its pages open. In each and every one of our projects, we seek the complicity of professionals in the areas of writing, photography and design. But, above all, we seek the reader's complicity, which gives meaning to the project.

Úrsula, the online bookshop

In addition to publishing, we are also an online bookstore, a showcase at the disposal of museums, cultural institutions and social initiatives, and at the same time a point of sale for your publications. We also know that it is not always easy for them to reach the public. On the other hand, potential readers often find specialist publications difficult to locate. Our online bookstore is the link in this chain. For institutions, we offer an extensive catalogue specialising in art and culture publications. And for readers and lovers of books and images, we offer a space in which to find specific publications, with a fast and guaranteed delivery. We work with courier services who care about the working conditions of their staff. 

Úrsula art editions
