For over 40 years, Scala has worked with the world’s leading arts and heritage organisations to widen cultural knowledge and appreciation, producing an ever-expanding range of publications from pocket-sized guidebooks to sumptuous illustrated catalogues.
Our range of genres and international reach continue to flourish, while our standards of design and production remain as high as ever, as does the calibre of our institution partnerships.
We are delighted to welcome clients for the first time from Greece, Cyprus, Switzerland, Latvia, Malta, Slovakia and Uzbekistan as well as new clients in Australia, Singapore, Russia, Portugal, Poland, Austria and Ireland.
This year Scala is proud to publish new books with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Courtauld Gallery, World Monuments Fund, Meadows Museum, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Gallery of West Bohemia, and is delighted to have new partnerships with the Sydney Opera House and Eurus Collection, South Korea.
We have a wonderful array of exhibition titles featuring contemporary art, photography, sculpture and two major new titles in our Library series: The National Library of Israel and The Morgan Library & Museum, New York.
The phenomenal success of our Director’s Choice series continues, and we are thrilled to feature ten more institutions in this year’s catalogue from the UK, Greece, Italy, Russia and Poland, making a total of over 80 titles in this popular series.
Our children’s list is augmented by an exquisitely illustrated classic of world literature, The Story of Babur, one of three projects with our partners in Uzbekistan, and we have two new titles in our series celebrating the architecture of buildings housing art and culture, Art Spaces.
All these additions complement Scala’s rich list of titles on the collections, history and architecture of the world’s cultural institutions and I hope you enjoy them.
