We are so proud and fortunate to work with the most talented authors!  Every one of these books began with thoughtful and creative collaboration with the authors before bringing them to the publishers. Starting with brand-focused concept development, building the right team, planning and executing photography, creating extensive presentation material and finding the right publishing partner and making the deal, we feel tremendous excitement when these books become bestsellers.

Books Build Brands

There is no better marketing tool than your book. Beautifully packaged and properly marketed, the right book serves as a vehicle for a multitude of marketing opportunities. Inevitably, it becomes the centerpiece of your brand promotion. Our work focuses on distinguishing your brand from all others.

“Jill Cohen and her team have been directly responsible for so much that is impressive about Rizzoli’s interiors and lifestyle books. They’ve worked with and discovered countless authors and firms we have published, carefully evolved their book ideas, collaborated with them closely on their photography and styling, worked closely with writers, and with us on art directing and producing their books, not to mention overseeing marketing efforts. A pioneer, a muse, a close colleague, Jill and I have been to the moon and on together.”

Charles Miers, Publisher at Rizzoli Publications
