Creative publishers for the applied visual arts
Our books are written by leading academic authorities, the texts undergo peer reviews and are refined through ongoing consultation and development, in order to best reflect the needs of today’s student. To date, many hundreds of universities, colleges and higher education bodies around the world have adopted and recommended our texts across numerous courses and programs.
When our business was founded a few years ago we wanted to rethink the concept of the ‘textbook’. Our audience is visually literate, technically sophisticated and acutely aware of good design and presentation. In our endeavour to create twenty-first-century textbooks for twenty-first-century students, AVA Academia’s titles respond to these qualities. It seemed to us that academic books about the applied visual arts should themselves be both well designed and well written, something that had previously appeared to be an either/or option for many publishers.
