Our emphasis is on art, science, technology, and ephemera. Our focus matches the major research areas of the Diatrope Institute, a Berkeley-based academic research institute of which we are a part. The Diatrope Institute disseminates information and engages in research exploring art, science, technology and cognitive neuroscience. Use the menu above to explore our projects and some of our publications. Diatrope Press publishes academic and literary books of interest. We recently published Illustrated Life of Leonardo da Vinci from Lives of the Most Excellent Painters, Sculptors, and Architects by Giorgio Vasari edited with illustrations and annotations by Christopher W. Tyler. Diatrope Books specializes in academic and museum publications, with an emphasis on art, science, and technology research. Purchasing books directly from the Diatrope Books web site helps support Diatrope’s mission. We add used books daily.
On our website we also offer book reviews going back to 2003, see https://www.diatrope.com/book-reviews/, free downloadable books and articles, see https://diatropebooks.com/download-free-ebooks/, a blog at https://www.diatrope.com/diatrope-blog/, and more.
