ABOUT US
Created: 13. 3. 2017 from Publications

The Publishing House of the Academy of Arts, Architecture, and Design in Prague was established in 1996 and has since published a great number of original books on the theory and history of arts, and other scientifically valuable literature (18 works annually, on average). The Publishers’ Catalogue also includes exhibition catalogues, retrospective catalogues and printed materials associated with various activities of the Academy, such as bookbinding and typography manuals; textbooks; study materials on art management; monographs; and bilingual large-format books with illustrations.  All the publications are of the highest quality in terms of science and research (each being reviewed by one or two experts in the given field) and are included in the Information Register of R&D results (RIV). Students and graduates of the Academy, as well as teachers themselves, create the remarkable and innovative design of the books. The Publishers’ Catalogue is prepared and approved by the AAAD Editorial Board, currently composed of seven members. 

The publications of the AAAD Publishing House are available for sale at the AAAD Gallery (“Galerie UM”, located in the Academy building at nám. Jana Palacha 80, Prague), at various art galleries and museums, e-shops and bookstores throughout the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic (see Sale and Distribution).
