For publishing companies - Books, Rights & More supports publishing companies of all sizes. We offer assistance with all aspects of publishing, from handling a specific part of a book project to coordinating the entire process. Examples of how we provide support include: publishing advice • developing book concepts • editorial assistance • translations • design and production • sale of international rights

 

For companies and organisations - Are you planning to publish a book about your company history, or to mark an anniversary? Books, Rights & More can handle the entire process, from concept to ready-made book, and produce a high-quality publication that does you and your company justice. In addition, we can arrange and produce company brochures, website text and annual reports.

 

Book packager - Books, Rights & More also develops books of its own, for both the Dutch and the international market, primarily in the lifestyle category. Examples include the recently published Oudolf|Hummelo by Piet Oudolf and Noel Kingsbury and Fabric Pictures by Janet Bolton. A number of new titles are currently in development.

International rights - At Books, Rights & More we provide advice about the national and international sales potential of your publications. We can introduce you to relevant publishers at home and abroad.

We actively sell the international rights to the publications developed by Books, Rights & More during the international book fairs in London, Frankfurt and Bologna.

 

Publishing agent - Books, Rights & More also represents individual authors. Writing is an author’s top priority, and the commercial side of the publishing world can be complex and confusing. In that case, it is reassuring to have the support of a professional who will protect your business interests and prevent you from making unwise decisions. We can represent you on a project basis or for all of your publications, as preferred. For example, we have been the literary agent for garden and landscape architect Piet Oudolf for many years.

Eric Carle Production Agency - There are few countries in the world where children have not heard of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The popular caterpillar and numerous other colourful creations dreamt up by Eric Carle have become known and loved across the globe. In close collaboration with the Eric Carle Studio in the USA, the Eric Carle Production Agency organises international print runs for Eric Carle's books so that children in the Netherlands, the rest of Europe and beyond – including in countries as far flung as Mongolia, Russia, South Africa, Brazil and the Faroe Islands – can enjoy his stories.

 

Consultancy - We are regularly asked to share our insights and expertise with respect to publishing strategy, the development of a new publishing portfolio, the launch of a new title on the Dutch market or the sales approach when selling the international rights to a book. In addition to all the practical, hands-on support we can provide at Books, Rights & More, we are also happy to offer you proactive advice in the role of consultant.

 

'Manuscript doctor’ - Do you have a manuscript that’s got stuck in a rut? One which just isn’t quite right? That can happen sometimes, but a lack of time often prevents editors from tackling the situation, in spite of the book-to-be having potential. And for authors, it can sometimes be difficult to let go of the text that they have worked on for so long. In that case, it can be a relief to have a sounding board.

At Books, Rights & More, we evaluate manuscripts, eliminate any sticking points and mould them into a well-thought-out and marketable book concept.
We are specialised in illustrated books in the categories of gardening and landscape design, interior design, fashion and the history of fashion design, crafts and cookery.
