Pavilion Books Holdings Ltd is an English publishing company based in London.

It specialises in illustrated books and digital content.


The company traces its history as an independent publisher to 2005 when Chrysalis Books Group was acquired as a management buy-out by Robin Wood, Polly Powell and David Profitt from the Chrysalis Group. Chrysalis Books Group took the name Anova Books to avoid confusion with its former holding company, Chrysalis Group. In 2014 Anova Books was renamed Pavilion Books. It has since acquired and created several other imprints. The company's sole owner and publisher is Polly Powell. The Managing Director is David Graham. Directors are Polly Powell, David Graham, Zana Hanks and Vaughan Grylls.


Current imprints include:
