Miller’s Publications was co-founded by Judith Miller in 1979, and the first Miller’s Antiques Price Guide was published in the same year. It rapidly grew to become the essential companion for anyone who loves antiques, including collectors, dealers, auctioneers and interior decorators. Selling in excess of 100,000 copies per year, it is sold across the US, Europe, Britain and Australasia.
The easy to understand, illustrated format opened the world of antiques to a wider audience, allowing anyone to collect, buy or sell with confidence. Published annually, and with entirely new content every year, Miller’s price guides build into the world’s most comprehensive visual reference library on antiques and collectables.
In 1987, the first Miller’s Collectables Price Guide was added to an ever-expanding list of books which now includes the Antiques Encyclopedia, Care & Repair of Antiques & Collectables and The Antiques & Collectables Fact Book.
The company was acquired by Mitchell Beazley in 1996, and is now part of the Octopus Publishing Group. In 2007, Judith Miller returned to Miller’s, where she now heads its rapidly developing international list. Today, Miller's Antiques Price Guide and Miller's Collectables Price Guide are the biggest and best full colour, fully illustrated antiques and collectables price guides in the world.
