Gingko Press was established in Hamburg, Germany in 1985 by Mo Cohen and Julie von der Ropp. Moving the business to California shortly after, they began distributing Taschen books and eventually began accepting and publishing original manuscripts. In 1999 Gingko Press bought the world rights to the writings of iconic professor, media pioneer and prolific author, Marshall McLuhan. Famous for his accurate predictions of the World Wide Web, the influence of pop culture and the emergence of ‘street’ education; McLuhan is most remembered for his influential phrase “the medium is the message.”
