"Chronicle Books" is a San Francisco-based American book publishing/publisher of books for adults and children.

The company was established in 1968 by Phelps Dewey, an executive with Chronicle Publishing Company, then-publisher of the San Francisco Chronicle. In 1999 it was bought by Nion McEvoy, great-grandson of M. H. de Young, founder of the Chronicle, from other family members who were selling off the company's assets. At the time Chronicle Books had a staff of 130 and published 300 books per year, with a catalog of more than 1,000 books. In 2000 McEvoy set up the McEvoy Group as a holding Company. In 2006 the McEvoy Group purchased Spin Magazine in connection with the owners of San Francisco's 7x7 Magazine and California Home + Design/California Home+Design.cite news
