"Some of the most interesting insights are about cultural changes... Fascinating details. The most original parts of the book are the chapters on the unsung heroes of publishing: typographers, designers, printers and illustrators. [Nyburg] creates a picture of a whole visual culture. These extraordinarily cultured individuals didn't just affect art books. They made British culture, once notoriously parochial and wordy, more cosmopolitan and more visual."-Jewish Renaissance
"The enforced emigration of writers, artists and scholars and scientists from the Third Reich has been called Hitler's gift to Britain. Among the many ways in which it enriched British culture was the introduction of art history and, as Anna Nyburg's Emigres informs us in often fascinating detail, art history... Nyburg's extensive reading and archival researches have enabled her to compile a valuable addition the exile studies and to the theme of cultural transfer."-TLS
