Abrams Books is a book publishing company in New York City, New York founded in 1949 by Harry Nathan Abrams to publish high-quality art and illustrated books.[2] Under Harry Abrams, works by Norman Rockwell helped establish the company's reputation. The Art of Walt Disney was highly successful, and Gnomes by Wil Huygen and Rien Poortvliet made the New York Times bestseller list and was reissued in 2006. The company became renowned for its monographic studies on contemporary artists. The Times Mirror purchased the company in 1966, with Harry Abrams remaining at the helm. With Abrams' retirement in 1979, Paul Gottlieb took over as publisher and editor-in-chief of the company, a position he held until his unexpected death in June of 2002.

Purchased in 1997 by La Martinière Group from Paris, France, the company also specializes in photography, design, architecture, art history, and natural history books. They have distribution agreements with high-profile businesses such as Forbes magazine book club and co-publishing arrangements with cultural institutions and museums in both the United States and Europe including the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Guggenheim Museums. The company also sells Abrams Books for Young Readers, a line of children's books.
