Whether you’re an art student or a gallerist, a photographer or an architect, a collector, a curator, or just curious to look at the world through the lens of visual culture, you’ve come to the right place: the ARTBOOK | D.A.P. catalogue is where the world’s leading museums, cultural institutions, galleries and independent arts publishers announce their forthcoming books for the next season.

Ever since we founded D.A.P.|Distributed Art Publishers in 1990, it’s been our mission to bring together readers and publishers in the visual arts. Two decades later, it remains our conviction that readers value thoughtful design, impeccable reproductions, rigorous scholarship, graceful writing and creative experimentation in the form of the book. The publishers and museums we feature are those who not only embrace these standards but also continuously refine and redefine them. We’re honored to represent them.

As you page through our catalogue, we hope you’ll be intrigued, moved and even awed by what’s forthcoming among these 600 new photo books, art monographs, architecture and design titles, artist’s books and international exhibition catalogues. And, over the months to come, when you discover these new books out in the shops, we hope you’ll acknowledge, respect and support the local stores and museums who open their doors to showcase these books for you.
With each catalogue we publish, we discover emergent connections between artists, curators and writers. This season, we’re intrigued by the legacy of early twentieth-century abstraction in the work of contemporary artists who use pattern as an aesthetic strategy in the age of the digital. What do you see?
