About Us

We are a small but dedicated team of designers, editors, and art lovers. From our studio in the heart of Seattle, we bring creative projects to life for arts institutions of all kinds.

Staff

Melissa Duffes

Editorial Director | Email

Melissa oversees our editorial department and provides developmental and copyediting services and early manuscript assessment for our projects. With graduate degrees in Art History and in Decorative Arts and Design History, she worked in museums as both a curator and a catalogue editor before joining L|M in 2013. When not checking for inconsistencies in footnotes, Melissa enjoys collecting Regency-era teaspoons and staying out of the sun.

Tom Eykemans

Design Director | Email

Tom collaborates with clients to develop the look and feel of books from concept to object. Drawing on more than 15 years’ experience in design and publishing, along with a diverse range of interests, he finds creative solutions that help elevate projects to become something special. He was previously Senior Designer at the University of Washington Press for almost a decade and is an alumni of that same school’s rigorous Visual Communication Design program. He was born in Seattle to Dutch parents and was raised in Port Angeles, Washington, where the mountains greet the sea.

Leah Finger

Production Director | Email

Leah oversees Lucia|Marquand’s book production by managing prepress, printing, and delivery schedules; maintaining operations with our prepress house; and collaborating with printers around the world to ensure the highest quality in materials and production for our publications. She came to L|M in 2011 with over 20 years experience in both printing and book production. When she’s not reading you can find her either swimming, biking, or running along the beach.

Jeremy Linden

Production Coordinator | Email

Jeremy takes care of the nuts-and-bolts digital work required to produce our books and ensures that the designers’ ideas translate properly onto paper. He also designs the in-book maps for titles that include them. He has over 25 years of production and design experience, and loves photography, DJing, and his three cats.

Adrian Lucia

Partner | Email

Adrian works with clients—from artists to architects, curators to collectors—on all aspects of the publishing process. He consults on project goals and strategies, develops and oversees budgets, and provides support for his colleagues. Adrian comes from a bookselling and publishing family and was a summer intern at Marquand Books in 1998. He’s a proud alumnus of St. John’s College and holds a master’s degree in library and information science from the University of Illinois. Adrian joined Marquand Books again in 2006 and became partner in 2013. You can find him on his bike looking for a hill to climb.

Ed Marquand

Partner | Email

Ed started his business as a graphic design firm in the late 1970s, working with artists and galleries. At the suggestion of an editor at the Seattle Art Museum, he restructured the business to include editorial services and formed Marquand Books in the mid-1980s. Although the company has evolved in the past few decades, that basic model remains. In 2006 he founded Mighty Tieton, an incubator for artisan businesses in central Washington. He spends much of his time there designing and producing fine art press editions.

Meghann Ney

Image manager | Email

Meghann guides image submissions, working with clients and the production team to organize, assess, and process image materials for each project. Outside of L|M she works as a freelance designer and when not thinking about books, she enjoys experimenting in the kitchen.

Ryan Polich

Design Director | Email

Ryan works closely with curators, authors, and artists to realize a collaborative vision for every publication. He holds degrees in photography and graphic design, and has long been obsessed with typography and print in all its forms. Ryan joined L|M in 2011 as a design and production assistant and image manager, and became design director in 2016. In rare moments of downtime, he prints with a century-old cast iron letterpress in his backyard studio.

Kestrel Rundle

Managing Editor | Email

Kestrel manages our project schedules and guides books through the editorial process. She also coordinates our co-publication and distribution efforts. A lifelong booklover, Kestrel’s first job ever was in a library. She went on to earn a degree in English literature and a certificate in editing and worked as a bookseller before joining the L|M team in 2014. When she isn’t consumed with reading, Kestrel can usually be found in her garden.

Becky Schomer

Accounting Manager | Email

Donna Wingate

Creative Director, New York | Email

Donna has worked directly with L|M’s client-publishers since 2008, providing comprehensive project evaluation, consultation, and development. For twenty years, she has worked with artists, museums, private collections, authors, publishers, and other institutions, specializing in editorial and creative direction, and production and distribution support for a wide range of fine art publications. Donna is also the publisher and editor of two independent imprints, Foggy Notion Books and S/W Ediciones. She holds MA and MFA degrees in Italian Literature and Photography and a BA in Comparative Literature. Since 2000, she has lived and worked in Manhattan’s East Village.
