Abstract Publishing was established in 1972 with the sale
of advertising for the Antique Shop Guide for Chicago and Vicinity.
Since then, Abstract Publishing has been considered a specialty
publisher, producing guidebooks, directories and workbooks concentrating
on specific areas of interest and communal focus. Abstract Publishing
has also been involved in traditional hard-backed and paper-backed
book production during the late 1970s and early 1980s. In 1988
Abstract Publishing made a transition from printed books to digital
media duplication and ultimately to the lucrative software development
and publishing arena. In 2002, the decision was made to bring
back and combine the traditional printed proprietary publications
of the past with the digital and Internet-based wave of the future.
