About Phaidon | Phaidon
The classic Phaidon book which is familiar to every private and institutional art library emerged in when large-format books with outstandingly high-quality plates were issued on Van Gogh, Botticelli and the French Impressionists. These titles were freshly commissioned by Horovitz and were aimed at the British and American market.
Horovitz was a pioneer of the international co-edition, and it was the large print-runs thus achieved that enabled him to combine low price and high quality. This was made possible only with the help of the British publisher, Sir Stanley Unwin, who gives a graphic account of how he outwitted the German authorities in his autobiography The Truth about a Publisher.
Horovitz and Goldscheider expanded the large-format series to include books on Donatello, Bellini and Michaelangelo, many edited by Goldscheider himself. They were fortunate to have outstanding photogravure printers who kept the standards of reproduction at the highest level.

After the war the company launched an innovative programme of scholarly and popular art publishing. This included the monumental critical catalogue of drawings in the royal collection at Windsor Castle, begun in and continued for the next thirty years, and the elegant 'pocket' series of art history texts now republished as 'Arts and Letters' appeared.
In publishing history was made with the first Phaidon Colour Plate book, which for the first time made artists' work readily available in colour to a wide audience at a low price. However, Phaidon's best know title, The Story of Art first published in , had its origins in the mundane: a chance meeting between Horovitz and Ernst H. Gombrich on the top deck of a London bus. A fellow pre-war refugee from Vienna, Gombrich was a research fellow teaching at the Warburg Institute.
It was inspiration on the part of Horovitz to persuade him to write a one-volume survey of the history of art, and to encourage a reluctant author to persevere Horovitz refused to take back the advance when Gombrich got cold feet. Gombrich is one of a long list of illustrious art historians published by Phaidon.

Like many other publishers at the time Phaidon diversified into a range of areas, took on production and distribution of some Elsevier copyright titles and began to buy in titles from publishers abroad. While many fine books were published the strong and distinguished Phaidon identity had been lost. Elsevier found art books unprofitable and in an amicable management buy-out was negotiated by four directors under a holding company, Musterlin.
