MCCM Creations is a publishing platform set up in 2001. Since entering the world of book publishing in 2001, MCCM’s aspirations have remained consistent — to bring readers original and inspiring books from authors and designers who share a passion for books as objects and a strong desire for exploring hybrid concepts. We live in an age where people move freely across boundaries and inhabit areas of virtual space that intertwine to create new concepts and ways of living. These cross-disciplinary realities are at the core of MCCM fusing illustration, visual art, design, architecture, photography, socio-cultural criticism and literature.
Our published titles have a strong cultural slant and about the visualization of experiences, stories and perception through the printed word, images and sound. Broadly speaking, they fall into two genres: firstly, visual culture books related to architecture, art, design in Hong Kong, and neighbouring cities in the region — these titles often reflect the cultural and social profiles of a place and inspire discussion and out-of-the box thinking; secondly, illustrated fiction and picture books for children and young adults with the purpose of nurturing intellectual and aesthetic development beyond the regular school syllabus. Most of our titles are published in English or Bilingual, mostly Chinese and English, with two titles published in English and French. We have published over 100 titles to date. A large part of our publishing titles documents and reflects Hong Kong’s tangible and intangible cultural heritage.
We don’t publish a huge volume of books every year, but please visit our site
www.mccmcreations.com from time to time and check out our latest books and other new creations.
In January 2009 MCCM Creations was invited by the Hong Kong Arts Centre to operate a bookshop on location. We ran the bookshop for five and a half years, before it moved to PMQ, the former Police Married Quarters, for a temporary 5-month pop-up. Since early 2015, our bookshop has moved to integrate into our work studio in Sheung Wan.
