WORLD-CLASS WRITING. BEAUTIFUL DESIGN. IDEAS THAT MATTER.

VINTAGE is made up of all kinds of people, but what connects us is our love of books.

We publish some of the world’s most thought-provoking, unforgettable, beautifully designed books – from contemporary trailblazers to our red-spined VINTAGE Classics. Which means that our broad family of authors ranges from world-class prize-winners to brand new, emerging talent.

We know the thrill of coming across an undiscovered work of genius, of reading a classic that you’ve always meant to, of finding a book that speaks urgently to us and our times. We’re not just publishers – we’re passionate book lovers, dedicated to creating beautiful books for people who love to read.

Excellent communication skills are essential as you will work closely and effectively  with the media, authors and agents, and a wide range of internal departments.  Reporting to the Publicity Director, you will be meticulously organised and enjoy working as part of a busy team.
