Princeton Architectural Press is a small press publisher that specializes in books on architecture, design, photography, landscape, and visual culture, with over 1,000 titles on its backlist.[2] In 2013, it added a line of stationery products, including notebooks and notecards; the following year it began publishing children’s books.[3]

The press was founded in 1981 by Kevin Lippert in Princeton, New Jersey, where Lippert was then studying architecture at Princeton University. In 1985, it moved to New York City. In 2014, it moved again, to Hudson, N.Y., where it also operates a retail store, Paper + Goods.[4] It is not related to the Princeton University Press.[5]

Since 1996, Princeton Architectural Press has been distributed in the Americas by Chronicle Books. It was part of the German publishing group Springer Science+Business Media from 1997[6] to 2009. In early 2010 Lippert reacquired Springer's shares. In 2011, Princeton Architectural Press was acquired by the McEvoy Group, and PAP became a sister company to Chronicle Books.[7]
