Founded in 1997, our list encompasses novels, non-fiction, crime, children’s books – everything from timeless classics to the urgent and contemporary. We publish some of the twentieth century’s most widely acclaimed and brilliant authors, including Stefan Zweig, Antal Szerb and Gaito Gazdanov, as well as award-winning current writers like the Dorthe Nors, Benjamín Labatut, Ayelet Gundar-Goshen and Perumal Murugan. Our authors have been shortlisted for the Booker Prize, the International Booker Prize, and even won the Nobel Prize.
The Pushkin Collection of paperbacks, complete with French flaps, is designed to be as satisfying as possible to hold and to enjoy. Each book is typeset in Monotype Baskerville, based on the transitional English serif typeface designed in the mid-eighteenth century by John Baskerville. They are litho-printed on Munken Premium White Paper and notch-bound by the independently owned printer TJ International in Padstow, Cornwall.
Just five years old, and already shortlisted for Publisher of the Year at the CWA Daggers, Pushkin Vertigo presents the best crime fiction from all four corners of the globe. Favouring top-notch storytelling, original plotting and characters that leap off the page, we aim to cater to all tastes when it comes to mystery and suspense. Our list spans classic crime writers like Margaret Millar and Friedrich Dürrenmatt, Japanese masters of mystery like Seishi Yokomizo, and contemporary award-winners such as Emma Viskic and Jonathan Ames.
Pushkin Children’s Books
