F+W is a media and e-commerce company based in New York and founded in 1913. The parent company of F+W is Tinicum Incorporated, a private investment company. F+W Media publishes around 20 community-based units, with each focusing on a particular category, such as sports, writing, fine arts, crafts and design.

The company's growth is a result of major acquisitions of Krause Publications, Horticulture magazine and Adams Media.

Its Standard Catalog of World Coin provides information and pricing for rare and collectible coins. It also publishes knife collector price guides, money catalogs and magazines for the comics industry.
