From producing the first commercial edition of The Book of Kells to the triumphant publication of the six volume Vincent van Gogh – The Letters, Thames & Hudson has always been at the forefront of publishing, both culturally and in its production techniques.
In March 2020, Thames & Hudson unveiled its new Pentagram-designed identity and a new look for its signature World of Art series, founded in 1958. Relaunched with the tagline ‘See the arts through expert eyes’, the new cover design features fluid shapes based on a grid inspired by the Golden Ratio. These new editions boast new colour imagery, brand new titles and revised classics. World of Art continues to be at the heart of Thames and Hudson’s publishing programme, which also remains true to its founding principle: to provide a ‘museum without walls’.
Today, Thames & Hudson boasts relationships with museums and galleries both nationwide and internationally. We publish a range of exhibition catalogues in association with the British Museum and the V&A, along with a vast collection of artists’ monographs and art, photography, design, fashion, architecture and children’s titles.
Some titles we would like to highlight for 2020 are those in our World of Art relaunch, along with Grayson Perry: The Pre-Therapy Years; Derek Jarman: Protest, Africa State of Mind; Vincent Van Gogh: A Life in Letters; the revised editions of Christopher Neve’s Unquiet Landscape and Martin Gayford and David Hockney’s collaborative work, A History of Pictures.
