Philip started working for Thames & Hudson over 20 years ago as a desk editor, with brief interludes writing and translating. Titles he has handled for T&H include The Complete Letters of Vincent Van Gogh (in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum), Kimonos (from the Khalili Collection), Jewelry by Suzanne Belperron, books on monsters, mythology and the occult, as well as various photography and fashion titles (Chanel: The Vocabulary of Style, Dior: New Looks, The World According to Karl).
