Believing that less is more, Bertram + de Leeuw introduce no more than 6 authors each season, publishing up to 25 titles per year. They have a thorough knowledge of their market, its retailers and media, and B2B, and apply an efficient and creative approach.
Publishers Marij Bertram and Hendrik de Leeuw have over 20 years of publishing experience in The Netherlands. At VBK and then Nieuw Amsterdam Publishers, they were in charge of several business units dealing with fiction and non-fiction titles (at VBK: Atlas-Contact as well as Business Contact) and published many international best-sellers in the Netherlands such as Thomas Friedman, Richard Dawkins, Chris Anderson en Harold Macgee.
After having achieved several Dutch successes at Bertram + de Leeuw, such as the unique red-light district memoir MEET THE FOKKENS (more than 50,000 copies sold, foreign rights sold to 4 countries so far) and the inspirational business title GREAT TO COOL, they want to expand their publishing program with translated titles. They are interested in acquiring English language titles in the following fields:
- Current affairs
- Narrative non-fiction
- Popular science
