Art & Visual Culture

We publish a wide range of approaches to the study of art, image and culture, crossing disciplinary borders. You’ll find research on architecture to photography, fashion and design to art history, reflecting this interdisciplinary, transcultural and transhistorical field.

We have critical interventions between theory and practice, as well as field-defining reference works. Producing beautiful art books is important to us and we have a variety of richly illustrated art history projects and exhibition photography combining scholarly as well as artistic approaches to visual culture.

Our publishing in this field includes two important partnerships: since 2021 we have been the home of Studies in Photography. Their Scottish Photographic Artists series launches in 2023. In 2022 we partnered with the Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh to distribute their exhibition catalogues as Talbot Rice Gallery Editions.

We are always happy to hear from new authors and receive feedback from our customers, so please get in touch. I hope that you enjoy browsing our Art & Visual Culture catalogue online.
