The Publishing Department of the National Galleries of Scotland publishes a wide variety of high quality titles every year. Our aim is to support the NGS in its activities by producing titles that provide access to the national collection, accompany exhibitions, and further the Galleries' programme of scholarly research.

Through the production of a range of publications, the department also generates income for the organisation. The publications are designed to enhance the experience of visitors, and to reflect and extend the Galleries’ educational and scholarly activities.

As well as producing catalogues for exhibitions at the Scottish National Gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, we also publish a number of titles on different aspects of art and art history.
