In the nearly twenty-eight years since its founding, Princeton Architectural Press has become a world leader in architecture and design publishing, both in market share and in editorial and design excellence. With over 600 titles on their backlist, they have consistently sought the best in their field, and have been able to attract and publish it. They've made their reputation in part by identifying new trends and publishing first books on emerging talents, as well as definitive works on established names, and by creating books of unsurpassed design quality and production values.

They have also successfully broadened the scope of what design publishing constitutes, by publishing everything from theory anthologies to documentation of remote Canadian fishing villages. Crossing boundaries is their strongest suit: they excel at publishing books that defy easy categorization. And in an industry where the average life span of a book is measured in months, if not weeks, Princeton Architectural Press are a committed backlist publisher; indeed, the first book they published, Letarouilly's Edifices de Rome Moderne, is still in print.

Both the Press and their books have won numerous awards, for editorial excellence and for book design. They've been described in professional and popular media as "visually inviting," "elegant and charming," "useful as well as beautiful," "lovingly produced," "authoritative," "thorough and comprehensive," and so on: Princeton Architectural Press try to make books that are smart and beautiful.
