The avant-garde TECTUM Publishers, Belgium ( are now celebrating their twelfth year of publishing excellence. This year marks a significant milestone for TECTUM, producing thought-provoking illustrated books on a vast range of topics.

With their penchant for the extraordinary, they continue to explore today’s world and its people, always on the lookout for cutting–edge ideas and imaginative views that can be turned into compelling new titles. Their popular “Coffee Table” format books have been particularly successful.

In October of 2011, TECTUM signed a licensing contract with MARLEX to develop an original Thierry Poncelet Coffee Table book, titled “OH MY DOG”. It will contain 144 pages presented in a creative contemporary fashion as a sort of unexpected melting pot, mixing different styles and contexts. The illustrations are accompanied by hilarious narratives and quotations, some of them interacting with the artist Thierry Poncelet himself.

The book will be introduced in April 2012 in three languages: English, French and Dutch. TECTUM intends to have co-editors for other languages and is also looking for a US partner.
