Phaidon Goes Digital With New eBook Series

Visual arts book publisher Phaidon is entering the digital book market with the launch of four modern artist monographs from the Phaidon Focus series.

The titles, which include: Andy Warhol by Joseph Ketner; Francis Bacon by Martin Hammer; Brice Marden by Eileen Costello; and Anselm Kiefer by Matthew Biro, will be available exclusively through iTunes.com/Phaidon for $9.99. Titles about Georgia O’Keeffe, Jackson Pollock, and Cindy Sherman are slated for release in 2014.

“Phaidon has been publishing beautiful books on art and culture for a sophisticated global audience since 1923 and so it is with no little excitement that we are launching our first titles on iBooks,” stated David Davies, CEO of Phaidon. “Apple has created the first digital platform able to do justice to our award-winning content and design work and we’re overjoyed to bring our first digital editions to market. This new publishing program begins with four titles from the Phaidon Focus series of affordable and definitive monographs on leading modern artists, including Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Anselm Kiefer, and will develop into a significant digital library of beautiful art titles.”
