Melodic Virtue is an independent publisher of limited-run coffee table books that feature visual histories of indie rock bands. The company’s initial publication was Pixies: A Visual History, Volume 1.[1], with 2017 seeing the release of Face to Face: 25 Years of SoCal Punk, The Visual History [2].

Since its founding in 2004, Melodic Virtue has had various incarnations, beginning as a record label [3] before becoming a freelance graphic design business [4]. The company’s design work has largely centered on music, including long-time album design for Ween dating back to the early 2000’s [5]. Melodic Virtue has also worked with record labels such as Epitaph, Secretly Canadian, Joyful Noise, and Temporary Residence, as well as musicians such as Explosions in the Sky and Tanya Donelly [6].

Melodic Virtue was founded by graphic designer Aaron Tanner. A musician himself, Tanner has played bass in various bands since the early nineties [7], including Stationary Odyssey.

The music-oriented coffee table books carry on Melodic Virtue’s goal of telling artists’ “authentic and unusual stories visually” [8]
