Phaidon is the premier global publisher of the creative arts with over 1,500 titles in print. We work with the world's most influential artists, chefs, writers and thinkers to produce innovative books on art, photography, design, architecture, fashion, food and travel, and illustrated books for children. Phaidon is headquartered in London and New York City.
Phaidon has a long and distinguished history as an art book publisher. The leading international publisher in the arts immediately post-war, the company went through a period of decline in the 1980s but since it changed ownership in 1990 has vigorously reclaimed its position.
The company's success since 1990 was built on a return to Phaidon's traditional values of excellent design and affordable prices. The books became recognised world-wide as being of the highest quality in terms of content, design and production.
The 2005 English publication of The Silver Spoon and the 2006 launch of the 'Wallpaper City Guides', a major series of travel guides aimed at Phaidon's core audience, successfully extended these skills beyond Phaidon's traditional subject areas.
