The story of a Photo Agency that becomes a publishing house

SIME Books is a publishing house specialized in editorial products for the travel and tourismcookery, and children's sectors. Our books, guides and multimedia are all designed to dazzle the reader with the beauty of Italy’s landscape and culture.

The Simebooks concept was the brainchild of photographer Giovanni Simeone, the founder of the Simephoto Agency, a photo library dedicated to quality travel stock photography. Our crisply edited, exclusive collection of travel images contains landscape, cityscape, food & drink, lifestyle and nature photography. Multilingual or translated content editions.

For more information about our work, any of our photographers, special uses, a custom image search, or a specific picture for your project, please visit our website
