About Ashgate's Art and Visual Studies List
Ashgate’s art-book publishing consists of two strands: highly
specialized, scholarly research monographs and essay collections in
Visual Studies, which are published under the Ashgate imprint, and
illustrated art books for specialists, professionals and
enthusiasts, which are published under the Lund Humphries imprint.
Ashgate’s scholarly Visual Studies programme features rigorously
peer-reviewed, high quality original research by authors from
around the globe.
We continue to expand the Visual Studies publishing programme,
from the medieval period through to the mid twentieth-century.
Important development areas, for which book proposals are
especially welcome, are:
- women’s/gender studies
- book/publishing history and print culture
- modernism/modernist studies
- the interrelationship between art history and the history of
- religion and visual studies.
We remain committed to publishing both single-author volumes and
essay collections; and we are expanding the list to include
essential reference works as well. We welcome both proposals for
reference works, and suggestions about the kinds of reference works
that would be most useful to art historians.
Lund Humphries, part of the Ashgate
Publishing Group since 1999, is a long-established publisher of
illustrated art books. We welcome proposals for specialist
illustrated books across the visuals arts, with a particular
interest in the following areas:

Studies list should be sent to Erika
