Ammonite Press, UK
Biographic series | Illustrated reference | Guide | Gift book | Photography
Ammonite Press publishes illustrated reference, guide and gift books that bring the worlds of photography, history and pop culture into sharper focus. We aim to inform, inspire and entertain by keeping exceptional images at the heart of our books.
On the 2017 gift list, our flagship Biographic series continues to grow, presenting graphic guides to iconic lives including Degas and Klimt, Dior and Coco, Austen and Shakespeare. Elsewhere, we voyage to imaginary places populated by typographic creatures, monsters experiencing domestic difficulties, and a mythical beast acting as an irreverent guide to self-improvement. In photography, drones help us to scale new heights while masters of their art reveal the secrets of capturing perfect landscapes. We also present the stunning collections of two prestigious photography competitions.
Interactive journals are a new addition to both the gift and photography lists, as Ammonite Press continues to pursue innovations that can inspire readers to discover and explore their own creative space.

The National Gallery, UK
The National Gallery is an art museum in Trafalgar Square in the City of Westminster, in Central London. Founded in 1824, it houses a collection of over 2,300 paintings dating from the mid-13th century to 1900. Over 1.7million people world-wide engaged with National Gallery exhibitions in 2018. At Trafalgar Square, the programme featured an unprecedented 14 exhibitions covering a substantial breadth and depth of subjects. Major names, such as Monet, offered our visitors the opportunity to see significant paintings by some of the most well-known artists in the world. Other exhibitions, such as Murillo: The Self Portraits provided an in-depth, more specialist look at a particular facet of an artist’s oeuvre, whilst first-ever UK exhibitions of Thomas Cole, Sorolla and Lorenzo Lotto positioned the Gallery as a place to discover new artists. The increased involvement of contemporary artists with the Gallery gave added dynamism to the programme, and we were pleased to work closely with George Shaw, Ed Ruscha, Rachel Maclean and Tacita Dean. Internationally, five exhibitions were created in collaboration with international partners including major museums in the US, Spain, Germany and Ireland.
