About AHPI

Over nearly a decade, the four publishers involved in this groundbreaking collaborative initiative have published fifty-four books by first-time authors in art history

A multi-press collaboration to publish both digital and print editions of books in art history.

The Art History Publication Initiative (AHPI), funded for nine years by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, supported four university presses in the publication of illustrated books by scholars across the discipline of art history. Books selected for inclusion in AHPI benefited from:

  • Financial assistance and guidance in securing permission for illustrations
  • Publication in both print and electronic editions
  • A shared website hosting additional electronic enhancements to the book, including audio, video, and illustrative material
  • A strong marketing program, including both print and digital advertising

Some of the books and accompanying materials will soon have a permanent home on Fulcrum. Please check back for more information on this partership.
