Phaidon is the world’s premier publisher of books on the visual arts. They believe passionately in the creative act and aim to make it exciting and understandable by all and to celebrate its greatness in everything they produce. They have published books with some of the most creative artists, architects, designers, photographers and chefs of the 20th and 21st centuries. Phaidon work collaboratively with the creative arts world’s most inspiring names to achieve the most faithful representation of, and the truest insight into, the way those artists and visionaries interact with the world around them – whatever medium they work in.
Phaidon has established longstanding relationships with respected and internationally renowned names such as Ai Weiwei, Elliott Erwitt, René Burri, Nan Goldin, Ferran Adria, Stephen Shore, John Pawson, Steve McCurry and The Bouroullec Brothers among others. Their production values are a matter of pride and our award-winning Collectors Editions - luxuriously packaged, limited editions of books, usually with a signed print or specially-commissioned piece of art, are unrivalled in the publishing industry.
At heart they believe that a knowledge of the creative visual arts, in all their forms, confers real and worthwhile social prestige on a person. More recently, their webzine phaidon.com provides high quality and original content designed to surprise and inform, rooted in the DNA of Phaidon but re-imagined for a digital medium.
