36 Top Book Publishers in Washington(Part-2)
Hi! We’re The Pediment Group, and we’re glad to meet you! We are publishers of fine things like books, calendars and postcards, and developers of cool things like web sites and book apps.
Folks often ask, “what’s a pediment?” so you might be wondering that very thing. Let us explain. As Wikipedia puts it, a pediment is an element of classical, neoclassical and baroque architecture. See, we are big fans of art, especially architecture, and even bigger fans of history. So “pediment” is a great term to showcase a union of art and history. In fact, if you want to think of us as an “art and history” publisher, that’d be just fine!
Publishers of art and history sound pretty ambitious, especially for a small business like us, but we don’t have such lofty ambitions on our own. Really, our world-class clients—or partners, as we like to call them—are the reason we can aim for world-class projects (books, web sites, and so on), and consistently deliver impeccable quality while adhering to the highest standard of customer support and service. In other words, our partners help us make great books, calendars, and web sites, and we’re confident you’ll love them!
With a series of books that told the story of the conception, construction, and completion of Alyeska’s Trans-Alaska pipeline under the name of Scribe Publishers, Barry Provorse and business partner Boit Sesnon focused on combining three things: 1) the power of a book to tell a story, 2) images and text that work together to bring that story to life, and 3) high-quality, traditional bookmaking to set that story apart.
Over 100 books and 40 years later, Documentary Media is still focused on bringing those elements together to create exceptional books.
In 1981, Scribe Publishers became Documentary Book Publishers, with Provorse at the helm. Its first imprint was the illustrated history PACCAR: The Pursuit of Quality, which has since been through four editions. Documentary Book Publishers expanded beyond its roots in corporate history to include works in national financial history, regional history, and books on food and architecture.
In 2001, Provorse and his step-son, Petyr Beck, founded Documentary Media LLC. Beck, a Ph.D. historian, had been editing for the company since the early 1990s. Beck and Provorse joined forces to develop Documentary Media and expand their book publishing capabilities into new subjects, genres, and formats.
For over 40 years, Fantagraphics has published the very best comics and graphic novels that the medium has to offer.

Thus, we honor the rich history of comics while providing a platform for bold new stories, styles, and perspectives that push the boundaries of the medium.

HERE AT TIMELESS, WE BELIEVE that yoga is not only caring for the well being of body, mind, and spirit but the environment as well. Since 2004 we have been committed to using 100% post-consumer waste recycled paper for the interior stock of all timeless titles so that our business is not contributing to the destruction of the world's precious and irreplaceable forests.

From our classic books and audio to our new releases and ventures into video, timeless is dedicated to yoga at its most practical and engaging.
Timeless has grown out of the vision of Swami Sivananda Radha (1911-1995), a profound and practical spiritual leader, who dedicated herself to interpret the ancient wisdom of yoga for Western minds.
