Thames & Hudson
Thames & Hudson was founded in 1949 by Walter Neurath who was from Vienna. The vision of T&H was to spread knowledge about the world of art to the common public, and make accessible to non-specialist readers, at a price they could afford. World of Art series by Thames & Hudson's is very well-known. Especially, "A Concise History of Painting: From Giotto to Cézanne" (originally published in 1962) by Michael Levey, is a classic and contains great information about the history of European art. Thames & Hudson always takes pride for maintaining very high standards of books it publishes, both in terms of content as well as quality of the production.
