Tate has been publishing books on the visual arts since 1911. These include exhibition catalogues for exhibitions at Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool and Tate St Ives and a number books in their series on Modern Artists, British Artists, St Ives Artists and Movements in Modern Art.

They also publish a number of titles specifically for the student and scholarly communities, including art theory titles.

Tate Publishing is a division of Tate Enterprises Ltd, an independent company wholly owned by the Trustees of Tate. All profits from their publications go towards supporting the work of Tate. 1


When Tate first opened its doors to the public in 1897 it had just one site, displaying a small collection of British artworks. Today they have four major sites and the national collection of British art from 1500 to the present day and international modern and contemporary art, which includes nearly 70,000 artworks. 2
