Fontanka publishes high-quality books and catalogues on art and culture, specialising in Russia-related themes.
We also translate from and into Russian, and advise on cultural projects involving the UK and Russia.
We welcome ideas offering new perspectives on art and culture, particularly relating to Russia and Eastern Europe.
Recent publications include Francis Bacon and the Masters, for exhibitions at the Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, and the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, Norwich; and the catalogues for two exhibitions at the Hermitage in the summer of 2015: Candida Hofer: Memory and Zaha Hadid at the Hermitage.
