Gestalten, a German-based book publisher that specializes in titles on art, architecture, design and photography for adults, is launching a new imprint in the U.S. catering to children.
Back in April, the company launched its first line of children’s books under the name Kleine Gestalten. The Little Gestalten imprint will bring English-language versions of the publisher’s kids books to small readers in the U.S. market.
Publishers Weekly has the scoop: “Little Gestalten’s kickoff titles reflect the eclectic nature of the imprint, which will also include non-book sidelines. Debut releases include Elsa and the Night by Jöns Mellgren, a bedtime story about a girl who hides the night in her cookie jar; The Zoo’s Grand Opening: An ABC and Counting Book by Judith Drews, which introduces an alphabetical menagerie of zoo animals; andIssun Bôshi: The One-Inch Boy by Icinori, a Japanese fairytale.”
