Our books and editions are customized according to your wishes and ideas. We also see it as our role to have a collaborative partnership with all project members, to always provide advisory support to our clients, and to remain in direct agreement and close contact throughout the development process. It is the only way that first class results can be achieved.
We work together with a team of experienced editors, translators, graphic designers and lithographers on your book project. From the textual work to the overall layout, everything can be individually customised and compiled. Each title will be looked after by a project manager, who will be your personal main contact person in the publishers and will organise and guide the smooth running of the production process.
Editing | Editorial Office | Translations
German and foreign language editors check your manuscript for orthography, grammar and punctuation. They research and review the content, and should you wish, will also oversee your book project editorially. Translations for our mostly multilingual books will also be carried out by specialised native speakers. All editing of texts will be closely coordinated with you and the author.
Concept | Layout | Typesetting
At Kerber Verlag, each book is unique. Experienced graphic designers with an instinct for fonts, colours, proportions and materials will, in coordination with you, develop a layout tailored to your publication. Similarly, the layout, image captions, catalogues raisonnés etc. as well as the final artwork will be undertaken by the designers.
Production | Prepress | Printing
We produce publications in many different designs, but always unique and of high quality, whether paperback, hardcover, with or without dust cover, English, French or Swiss brochure binding, standard format or non-standard sizes. We have our own lithography service, a complete prepress stage, and offer high quality reproductions, image composition and the most up-to-date printing technology. Should you wish, we can also offer products related to exhibitions and publications, including invitations, information leaflets, postcards and posters.
Sales | Marketing | Public Relations
We selectively present your books to well-assorted art book stores, and have a strong international distribution network, which extends from Europe to the USA and to Asia. Books from Kerber Verlag are available in over 40 countries worldwide and are, of course, available online. We regularly present our range at all relevant book fairs, such as in Frankfurt, Berlin, London, Vienna and New York. Furthermore, we organise events relating to titles, including book launches or artist's talks, and provide journalists and editorial offices with review copies and press releases regarding titles, events and fairs. We advertise your publication in our international new publications catalogue, which is published twice a year. Additionally, all new releases will be advertised on our website, in our newsletter and on social media.
