This book examines the impact on the British illustrated publishing industry of émigrés from Germany and Austria in the first half of the twentieth century, looking in particular at the art publishing houses of Phaidon Press and Thames & Hudson.

As well as telling the fascinating stories of some of Britain’s largest publishing houses, Émigrés is also beautifully designed, with rough-edged pages and bright orange sheets dividing the chapters.
