Founded in 1937, and now an imprint of Ten Speed Press, Watson-Guptill has a storied legacy of publishing hard-working and influential illustrated art books. We seek out respected authorities who instruct and inspire artists in a wide range of art, craft, design, and photography subjects.
Our list spans both fine art and practical art instruction in traditional disciplines such as drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking, with standout authors like Juliette Aristides, Burne Hogarth, and Rudy de Reyna. We also publish books focused on artistic pursuits such as craft, graphic design, comics, cartooning, and manga, authored by such authorities as House Industries, Stan Lee, Mark Crilley, Camilla D’Errico, and Chris Hart. Watson-Guptill books are found on the shelves of both amateur and professional artists around the world.
