pionier press is an independent micro publishing house based in Stockholm, Sweden since 1991 with a publishing focus on artist books, bilingual children books and experimental typography. A special interest is dedicated to Romanian topics.
The publishing house pionier press was started by the graphic designer Arina Stoenescu in 1991 in Stockholm as a project dedicated to explore the book as a container of art and letters. During the years, the publishing house hosted a range of publications dealing with bilingualism, Romanian topics with a special interest in Romanian contemporary history, experimental typography, children literature, illustration and pop-up interpretations of the content.
The idea of collaboration with other publishing houses in order to enable interesting projects and ideas to find their way to the public has been implemented within two titles and rendered co-publishing activity with Labyrint Press and The Romanian Cultural institute.
