We do NOT publish works of fiction.
Please send a short description of your project in English to email@example.com along with your CV. Unfortunately, because of the high volume of submissions that we receive, we cannot give feedback on proposals. If we are interested in your project we will contact you for further information.
Phaidon Press accepts submissions by email only. Please do not send hard copies. Phaidon cannot assume responsibility for any submissions sent by mail.
If you are interested in submitting a children's book proposal to us, please bear in mind that we currently publish for children ages 0-8 in the categories of: board book, novelty book, and picture book. Subject matter must be relevant to the target age group and quality must be commensurate with the Phaidon brand.
Priority is given to submissions that have been solicited or agented, and we will not reply to those that are not.
Appropriate submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not send hard copies. Phaidon cannot assume responsibility for any submissions sent by mail.
PLEASE NOTE: all submissions are considered carefully by the relevant team, but unfortunately we are not able to reply to each one directly. If you haven't heard anything back within three months from submitting your proposal, this means that this time you were unsuccessful.
Please do not contact us via phone regarding potential applications.
