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' and to make accessible to a broad, non-specialist reading public, at prices it could afford, the research and the findings of top scholars and academics. Thames & Hudson now 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.
