Publish With Us


Publishing art biographies, monographs and catalogues

We are always open to suggestions for new titles from experts in their fields and from public and private galleries with co-publication proposals on any aspect of British art of the past two centuries.

For the highest quality and keenest prices, contact us if you are thinking of publishing a book about one of your artists – or simply to get a competitive quotation for an exhibition catalogue.

Our range of services includes commissioning writers, editing, proof-reading, design, typesetting and printing.

If you have a text or project which you think might be of interest, please write to us with the following information:

1. a covering letter;
2. a synopsis;
3. a sample chapter;
4. a table of contents;
5. the estimated number of words;
6. examples or descriptions of any images, including the total number of illustrations to be used in the text. Please do not send any images at this stage;
7. if the manuscript is not yet complete, please indicate its anticipated date of completion; and
8. if you want your material returned, a self-addressed, stamped envelope (with the appropriate postage paid).

Your synopsis should be printed in black Times New Roman 12, double-spaced with usual indents, single-sided. Please do not send material on CD or memory stick. Please do not send a full manuscript.

Please note that we do not accept unsolicited manuscripts; we cannot guarantee a reply or the return of such material.
