TIJDSBEELD works as an independent publisher and as an international pre-press, production, packaging and service agency for museums and publishers worldwide.

In recent years TIJDSBEELD has specialized in producing and publishing multilingual museum guides and thematic collection guides intended for the general public of museum visitors. We have produced museum guides and exhibition guides and exhibition catalogues in most European languages, as well as in Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian.

Our successful collaborations with international museums led to an invitation by the International Association of Museum Publishers during Frankfurt Book Fair to present a lecture on how to manage the production of large-scale multi-language museum guides.

TIJDSBEELD has produced some 400 books on art, photography and history in more than 1,150 different language editions and co-editions for international museums and publishers.
