We're excited to introduce our new visual identity to coincide with the relaunch of our long-standing World of Art series.
Drawing inspiration from our rich heritage and diverse publishing programme, our new identity reinforces our position as the leading global publisher of illustrated books across all areas of creativity and culture.
Devised by leading design agency Pentagram, our refreshed look is both a modernisation and restoration of the brand.
A new modernist wordmark, informed by the artisanal nature of bookmaking, was created for use on book covers.
A modernised reworking of our original cartouche was also introduced, containing a T&H monogram locked up with our long-standing dolphins symbol.
The neutral colour palette of cool and warm greys is a further nod to our rich history and was inspired by the original mosaic from our former office at Bloomsbury Street.
This week we also relaunch our longest-running series, the World of Art. Created in 1958 and now spanning more than 300 titles, the series brought affordable art books to a large reading public. Today, the series remains at the forefront of pioneering, high-quality art publishing but is moving with the times. Relaunched with a bold new look created by Dutch design studio Kummer & Herrman, the cover design features fluid shapes based on a grid inspired by the Golden Ratio, the system of mathematical proportion believed for millennia to be the secret of aesthetic harmony in nature, art and design.
