Thames & Hudson was founded in 1949 by Walter and Eva Neurath. Their passion and mission for T&H was that its books should reveal the world of art to the general public, to create a ?museum without walls? To capture the essence of this international concept, the name for the company linked the rivers flowing through London and New York
Thames & Hudson has always prided itself on the very high standards of the books it produces, both in content and quality of production, and attracts many authors, artists, designers, illustrators and photographers who are distinguished in their own fields.
Thames & Hudson publishes approximately 180 new titles each year and has a current backlist of over 2000 titles. The company specializes in the arts (fine, applied, decorative, performing), archaeology and history, architecture, design, photography, travel and popular culture, but also publishes in a variety of other areas, especially those of visual interest.
One of its best-known and most envied publishing ventures is the World of Art series, in which well over 200 titles have been published over the last 30 years.
