Phaidon Press is a global publisher of books on art, architecture, design, fashion, photography, and popular culture that was founded in Vienna in 1923. They moved the company to England in 1938 to avoid the effects of the Nazi annexation of Austria. In 1967 they were acquired by Encyclopædia Britannica and from 1974 to 1981, Phaidon was then owned by Elsevier. It was when it was sold in a management buyout. The company is now based in London and New York City and has over 1500 titles in print. The books are mainly ‘coffee table’ type books.
