Lecturis was founded in 1922 as a book publisher. The Eindhoven-based company became a printing company from 1940 onwards, which increasingly focused on quality printing for artists and the business community. From 2010 not only books were printed but also published with a focus on art, design and photography.
Lecturis has been a publisher since 2015. Three funds ("imprints") are now active: Lecturis, DATO and Citrus. The Lecturis books are focused on art, design, and photography. DATO is the fund for books about (cultural) history, sports, and life style. Citrus was born in the summer of 2019: a fund with culinary books.
