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 collectibles.
In 1987, the first Miller’s Collectibles Price Guide was added to an ever-expanding list of books which now includes the Antiques Encyclopedia, Care & Repair of Antiques & Collectibles and The Antiques & Collectibles 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 Collectibles Price Guide are the biggest and best full color, fully illustrated antiques and collectibles price guides in the world.
