The company has two imprints: Gower Publishing publishes professional business and management titles,[3] and Lund Humphries – established over 60 years ago – publishes illustrated art books, particularly in the field of modern British art.[4] In March 2015, Gower unveiled GpmFirst,[5] a web-based community of practice allowing subscribers access to more than 120 project management titles, as well as discussions and articles relevant to business and project management.
