World class writing. Beautiful design. Ideas that matter.
What are you reading? That’s how great conversations start at Vintage. We’re all kinds of people, but what connects us is our obsession with books.
We publish some of the world’s most thought-provoking, unforgettable, beautifully designed books – from contemporary trail-blazers to our red-spine Vintage classics. Which means that our broad family of authors ranges from world-class prize-winners to brand new, emerging talent.
We know the thrill of coming across an undiscovered work of genius, of reading a classic that you’ve always meant to, of finding a book that speaks urgently to us and our times. We’re not just publishers, we’re passionate book lovers.
