The CCP Encylopedia of Philippine Art is an authoritative resource and "an invaluable record of Filipinos’ artistic contribution to the world." The 2018 print edition—which follows long after a 1994 edition—was made available for pre-order last month, and was recently announced to launch on November 28, 2018. It consists of 12 volumes covering the Philippines' architecture, visual, arts, films, music, theatre, broadcast arts and literature.

This entire resource was edited by Dr. Nicanor Tiangson, who put it together with the help of over 500 respected scholars, experts, researchers and writers from leading universities and research institutions.
