PUBLISHING HOUSE @ CONEXIÓN
Publishing House@Conexión conceives books as heritage and a starting point that transcends the literary territory to different realms, by creating experiences, promoting reading, social responsibility, and contributing to the historic memory.
Publishing House@Conexión has three creative areas: coffee table books, a children’s and juvenile collection, and ‘unique’ books.
COFFEE TABLE BOOKS
Books in artistic formats that feature exquisite content and workmanship

A children’s story written by Bruno Martínez Rosales, at the age of 10, in times of the covid-19 pandemic, where he re-creates a fantastic being in the world of alebrijes (brightly colored Mexican folk art sculptures of fantastical (fantasy/mythical) creatures, Wikipedia), who is looking for a heart. A short story, almost a fable, which contains a universal message.
Benjamín, 7 languages Collection
The story of the alebrije Benjamin has been translated into three languages native to Mexico: Wiráxika, Nahualt and Mi’phaa, as well as into English, French, German and Slovak, connecting children from all over the world with Benjamin’s emotions and genuine quest.
UNIQUE AND AUTHOR BOOKS
Special books that transcend, becoming unique publications, leaving a footprint on their creators, readers and ecosystems. With this collection we add strategic vision and value propositions to the authors’ ideas.
This is the first book published by actress Diana Bracho, in which she reveals a mature and exceptional poet. To her, the love for language is essential in her acting work as well as in her approach to literature. Her admiration for Japanese poetry and its synthesis is her reference for this publication.
Shure, 20 years of Vive Latino
Shure, the microphone specialist brand has accompanied the Vive Latino for more than 20 years. That is why in this emblematic anniversary a unique book is created to compile Shure moments with music artists at the largest rock and alternative music festival in Latin America.
Inauguration of Omnilife Stadium
The opening of the Chivas Rayadas de Guadalajara stadium -the most important team in Mexico- treasured emblematic moments, in which the press, fans, sponsors and the soccer teams that played the game that night, witnessed and expressed their admiration for the inaugural ceremony. A selection of photos, statements and historical memory was printed in a limited edition for owners and staff who co-created a night that would change the course of field-level events in Mexico.
