TOTEM is an independent art-book imprint founded by Frances Perkins in New York City in 2013.

From 2013-2016, Perkins ran a gallery, Eli Ping Frances Perkins, in Chinatown and then Harlem, New York. Her imprint is conceived as an exhibition-space-in-print, in which artists from within and without her gallery network are invited to develop ideas auxiliary to their practice. Working within the context of sequence and recurrence, each edition focusses on a unique and self-contained body of work, in which spatial relations of proportion and scale, so vital to traditional exhibition making, are reduced to symbolism.
