The Images Publishing Group, established in 1983, is one of the world’s most prestigious international publishers of architecture and design titles, and provides a global platform that has influenced and showcased the world’s leading and emerging architects and designers for four decades. Its trove of books showcases the best and most sustainable urban habitats and built environments, while satisfying an innovative and contemporary, yet timeless, aesthetic for good design.
While IMAGES is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, it also has offices in London, New York and Shanghai, and it has writers, editors and distribution agents actively working with it worldwide.
IMAGES specialises in lavishly illustrated and beautifully designed books on architecture and interior design. It also has a growing list of titles on a range of other subjects, including architectural illustration, art, automotive design and motoring, graphic design, landscape and garden design, fashion, photography, travel, and cooking.
IMAGES has earned the respect of the international architectural community with its extensive Master Architect and 21st Century Masters monograph series. More than 300 high-profile architects have already appointed IMAGES, with its worldwide reputation for excellence, to publish these important chronicles of their firms’ work.
The Master Architect series has documented the success of many of the world’s most inspired architects and boasts the leading collection of architecture monographs. Most recently IMAGES launched its comprehensive pictorial Leading Architects monograph series and the richly illustrated 21st Century Masters—the evolution of the influential Master Architect series. Other popular series include New Classicists; The Classical Architecture Collection; Residential Architecture Collection; Details in Architecture; Neo Architecture; House Design; the 100 of the World's Best; and the comprehensive pictorial International Spaces titles. Several series of anthologies are also produced in conjunction with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).
Peleus Press was established in 1999 by The Images Publishing Group to accommodate its growing list of books unrelated to architecture and design. The same high production standards and worldwide distribution apply to this imprint that to date includes fashion, new age, motoring, and equine titles.
It is fitting that the name Peleus, in addition to being the father of Achilles in Greek mythology, also means ‘patience and perseverance’, values which are at the heart of the success of The Images Publishing Group.
ACC Distribution has distributed IMAGES titles globally for more than two decades. In 2016, The Images Publishing Group purchased ACC Distribution. Group general manager and publisher Paul Latham says, “By acquiring ACC Distribution, IMAGES has total control over the logistics of its entire operation. Joining forces with the 150+ publishing houses represented internationally by ACC Distribution expands the group’s publishing expertise and outreach”.
