Unit Editions

Unit Editions is an independent publishing venture, producing books for an international audience of designers, design students and followers of visual culture. The company was formed in 2009 by Tony Brook, Patricia Finegan (both Spin) and Adrian Shaughnessy. In 2023, Unit Editions joined the Thames & Hudson family as the publisher’s latest imprint.

High quality design and production standards are partnered with insightful texts and informative commentaries to produce books on a wide variety of subjects – subjects that are either neglected or ignored by mainstream publishers.

Unit Editions books carrying the Unit imprint are only available from this website. Our books are shipped postage free to anywhere in the world. Superior protective packing is used to ensure that books arrive in pristine condition, and all large format books are shipped with protective corners.

We have a number of important books currently in the pipeline. The best way to keep up to date with our publication schedule is to sign up for our newsletter. People who receive our newsletter are the first to know about new titles and special offers.

We welcome comments and suggestions from our readers, you can email us here.
