The British Museum Press publishes award-winning illustrated books for general readers, families, academics and students.

All our titles are available to purchase from the Museum bookshop and from our online shop.

Inspired by the famous collections of the British Museum, our titles range across the fine and decorative arts, history, archaeology and world cultures.

Published to accompany the British Museum's innovative exhibition programme, to celebrate key areas of the collection, and to tell the stories of some of the amazing objects, our books shed light on new discoveries of global interest and provide fresh insights into well-known objects and periods of history. Beautifully produced and written by experts in their fields, our titles are sold throughout the world in many languages with all profits going to support the work of the British Museum.

The British Museum Press is a division of the British Museum Company Ltd, a company and a charity wholly owned by the Trustees of the British Museum.
