Thames & Hudson children's art book wins Bologna award
They had both fled Nazi Europe and they shared a passion for art and design. With offices in London and New York, their company was named after the main river in each city. Their aim was to produce well-illustrated, well-written books on art, painting, architecture and sculpture. Walter wanted their venture to be a "museum without walls", a way of bringing art to the masses at a price they could afford. Much of their business was social. They formed close relationships with art institutions, artists and intellectuals.
Anselm Kiefer by Thames & Hudson book
It has been an independent, family-owned company since its founding in Neurath ran an art gallery and published illustrated books with an emphasis on education. Neurath and Foges pioneered the concept of what is today known as book packaging, in which book ideas are conceived, commissioned, produced, and sold to publishers in different markets in their own languages and under their own imprints, called co-editions. By creating co-editions of colour illustrated books with changes made only to the black plate which carries the text, they could order large print-runs and lower the unit production costs for every publisher. Wishing to take co-edition book packaging further, and recognizing the need to amortize the high production costs of illustrated books, Neurath established his own publishing house, incorporating offices in London at High Holborn and New York in the autumn of Eva Neurath , who had emigrated to London in from Berlin she was at that time married to Wilhelm Feuchtwang and worked alongside Neurath at Adprint, co-founded the company as partner.
