The history of Dionysus Press shares the rich experiences of Dennis Marsico, a photographer of more than 25 years. The Dionysus Press artist books are a blending of the photographer's image-making talent with acquired letterpress and bindery skills.

In 1984 Dennis Marsico received a grant from the Graham Foundation for the Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, which resulted in a comparative photo-essay entitled The Italian Hilltown and the American Main Street Small Town. The photographs were exhibited at the il Diaframma Gallery in Milan and the Graham Foundation Gallery in Chicago. During this period his photographs were accepted for permanent collection in the Corcoran Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography and the Carnegie Museum of Art.
From 1987 to 2000 Marsico concentrated his efforts on editorial travel photography. He was commissioned regularly by Travel Holiday, Travel & Leisure, National Geographic Traveler and The New York Times Sophisticated Traveler. In 1992 he won the Lowell Thomas Award given by the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation for the best magazine black and white photography.
Again in 1993 Marsico received the award for a photo-essay entitled Paradise, a story that documented 13 towns in the USA named Paradise.
In 1993 Absolut Vodka commissioned Marsico for a series of 16 travel vodka ads.
With the advent of large-scale digital printing, Marsico made the decision to reenter the art arena, after a fifteen-year hiatus.
Marsico moved from making clever photographs of people in specific places to photo-essays with social context. The first editions published in 2002 were Right Noise and Policing Pleasure, each addressing pertinent political issues of the time.
In October 2005 Marsico was part of the exhibit Messages and Communications at the Mattress Factory Museum in Pittsburgh. His installation, Passion and Politics, amplified his sentiments by way of a cylindrical "Rare Book Room" divided into polarized points of view.
