This article analyses the impact of technology on the activity and strategies of publishers within visual culture. Existing publishers, heavily involved with publications in print, are urgently required to adjust their future strategies, while emerging companies are grasping opportunities presented by creating online content, e-books and apps. As in the past, artists and designers have played an important role in the development and innovation of twenty-first century publication design and despite the shift to digital, the printed book is still the predominant product.
