The leading global illustrated non-fiction book publishers

The Quarto Group makes and sells great books that entertain, educate and enrich the lives of adults and children around the world.

We create and own proprietary content, publishing books from a diverse portfolio of imprints that are creatively independent and expert in developing long-lasting content across specific niches of interest. We sell books across 50 countries and in 39 languages through a variety of traditional and non-traditional channels, while constantly looking for new ways to create and deliver content that people need.

We employ over 400 talented people across the US, UK and Hong Kong. The group was founded in London in 1976. It is domiciled in the US and listed on the London Stock Exchange.

Creativity at our very core

We believe in creative independence; the autonomy we give to our people and imprints ensures that we remain market-focused and relevant to all readers and customers. Our imprints are supported by a strong central platform that includes finance, operations, IT, sales, foreign rights sales, communications, legal and marketing. That scalable platform enables us to grow our business organically and by acquisitions.
