Vintage launch Vintage Minis Series


In June 2017, Vintage will launch a new range of short books to celebrate their extensive backlist, and delight readers with compelling titles on big subjects.

The 20 launch titles in the Vintage Minis series bring essential reading from the world’s greatest writers on the experiences that make us human. These stylish, entertaining, little books explore the whole spectrum of life – from birth to death, and everything in between.

Published in A-format, the Vintage Minis are formed of previously published material by great contemporary and classic writers from the extensive, award-winning Vintage backlist. Taking selections from fiction, non-fiction and essays, the Vintage Minis are a complete reading experience at about 100 pages.

From Murakami on Desire to Work by Joseph Heller, and Eating by Nigella Lawson to Death by Julian Barnes. Low on price but big on content, these books cover the human themes closest to our hearts.
