Pointed Leaf Press was founded in 2002 by Suzanne Slesin. As a publisher of high quality, photography-driven monographs on personalities (some well-known, some undiscovered) from the worlds of design, architecture, and fashion, we have made it our goal to create books that stand out, both for their unique content and matchless design quality.

A book from Pointed Leaf Press is a book like none other. They are visual biographies that envelop and expound – open any of our titles and become immersed in a world re-created on page in extraordinary depth and detail. Intensely researched and illuminated by new photography, each monograph instantly establishes itself as the subject’s authoritative source-book.

We have been fortunate to work with a wide list of phenomenally gifted collaborators. With art direction by Stafford Cliff and Sam Shahid, contributions from Yves Saint Laurent and Tom Ford, and titles authored by design legends such as Vladimir Kagan, as well as such note-worthy contemporary designers as William Diamond and Anthony Baratta, Scott Sanders, Matthew White, Sherrill Canet, and Frank Roop, our catalog bears the mark of authority from the design world.


The Publisher and Editorial Director of Pointed Leaf Press, Suzanne Slesin is an internationally-respected journalist in the field of home design and has had thirty years of experience as a writer and editor at such publications as the New York Times, Esquire, New York, and House & Garden. Slesin was named one of the “12 Design Visionaries to Watch” by House Beautiful in their December 2011/January 2012 issue.
