Founded by Harry N. Abrams in 1949, ABRAMS was the first company in the United States to specialize in publishing art and illustrated books. Now a subsidiary of La Martiniere Groupe, the company continues to publish critically acclaimed and bestselling works in the areas of art, photography, cooking, craft, interior and garden design, performing arts, fashion, and popular culture; children’s books ranging from young adult fiction to picture books to board books; and gift and stationery lines. For more than sixty years, ABRAMS has remained dedicated to a single objective—the practice of exceptional bookmaking. ABRAMS creates and distributes brilliantly designed visual books with the highest production values in the adult, young adult, and children’s trade markets under the following imprints: Abrams; Stewart, Tabori & Chang; STC Craft; Abrams ComicArts; Abrams Image; Abrams Books for Young Readers; Amulet Books; Abrams Appleseed; and Abrams Noterie. ABRAMS also distributes books for The Vendome Press, Victoria & Albert Museum, Tate, Royal Academy of Arts, Booth-Clibborn Editions, Five Continents, SelfMadeHero, and others.
