At Bonnier Books UK, we believe that every book matters. We love to publish stories and content that open our eyes to new perspectives and bring us closer together. We offer a nurturing home for our authors, illustrators and brand partners, publishing bestselling books for readers and listeners everywhere. We know that fantastic stories can come from anywhere and our purpose is to bring them to as wide an audience as possible, a simple ethos that has led to us becoming one of the country’s leading publishers.
The offspring of Bonnier Books, a family-owned top-15 world publisher headquartered in Sweden, we are inspired by a rich literary heritage but not bound by convention. We think in generations rather than quarters, and strive always to operate in an open, curious way that contributes to the future of the planet and its people. As a climate-neutral publisher we are an active participant in the Science Based Target initiative, committed to a strategy to limit global warming to 1.5 °C.
Bonnier Books gathers Bonnier's overall book publishing and retail activities, ranging from traditional and digital-first publishing, to quality bookstore chains, paperback retailers and digital subscription services.
With a heritage stretching back to 1837, when Albert Bonniers Forlag published its first work "Proof that Napoleon never existed", Bonnier Books has grown to include a great variety of publishing houses and book retailers across Europe. Originating from, and headquartered in, Stockholm, Bonnier Books is currently present in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, Poland, Denmark and the UK.
Starting in 1804 as a small bookstore and publishing firm, Bonnier is now an international media company with operations in 14 countries worldwide.
