The Pahidon Publisher is one of the first points of contact when it comes to books on the subjects of design, architecture and art already since 1923.

Béla Horovitz, Fritz Ungar and Ludwig Goldscheider founded the Phaidon Publisher in Vienna in the 20s, inspired by a writing of Plato. Phaidon was one of the first publishers to market culturally and intellectually significant works, before illustrated books became popular.

The Jewish owners moved to the UK in the chaos of the Nazi era, where the Phaidon Press is still located today. Some of the best selling, most popular and acclaimed books on art and culture comes from the Phaidon Publisher, who can claim to have played a large part in the spread of high culture in civilization.
