Jonathan D. Lippincott began his publishing career at Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 1994, where he rose to design manager. Since 1999 he has also worked independently as an art director, designer, and packager on a range of illustrated books about fine art, architecture, landscape, and design. Through close collaboration Lippincott helps clients create the publications they want and that will best serve their needs, as well as helping them navigate a variety of distribution options from traditional publishing houses to print-on-demand. His extensive experience with the art world and with book design, production, printing, and distribution allow him to guide this process from concept to finished book. For architects, artists, landscape designers, and others, documenting their creative output in brochures, catalogs, and books is a crucial part both of creating an historical record and of promoting interest in their work.

Many creative individuals are so focused on making new work that they do not adequately collect and document their oeuvre during their most productive years. Maintaining a high quality archive is a crucial part of sharing and promoting this work throughout an artist's lifetime and helping to ensure their creative legacy. Such an archive would include photographs of the artworks or designs as well as specs, exhibition records, publications, and other texts. This archive can serve as a crucial resource for currently practicing artists and designers, and inform future curators, writers, researchers and the general public. Lippincott can help assemble an archive with such needs in mind and, if requested, organize and produce catalogs and mongraphs, assist in creating websites, facilitate appraisals, and help negotiate the transfer of an archive to a publicly accessible institution.
