Stiernspetz & Arninge Publishing House is part of the publishing group Publicera. The original company was founded in 1997 by a Swedish journalist, photographer and author Peppe Arninge.
For almost ten years, the company was involved in a large number of journalistic assignments for a variety of newspapers and businesses in Europe, Asia and US.
2009 graphic designer and a long-term friend Johan Stiernspetz joined with his expertise and long experience. As a dedicated photographer and with a passion for the written word, he became a natural part of the company and the philosophy driving it.
The company name Stiernspetz & Arninge was decided on and launched in May 2017, as the company are the result of two personalities and their views of the world.
Today we exclusively work as a publishing house through Stiernspetz & Arninge in both domestic and international markets, focusing on documentary photobooks and Fine Art based on great commitment and genuine passion.
