The Bookseller has been the business magazine of the book industry since 1858; incorporating the even earlier Bent’s Literary Advertiser, established in 1802. It is one of the UK’s longest-standing magazines. We’ve reported on every significant book trade event, from the launch of George Eliot’s Mill on the Floss in 1860 to Allen Lane’s launch of the paperback to the demise of the Net Book Agreement in 1995 and today’s Amazon-led competitive struggles.

We’re based in London and owned by The Stage Media Company Ltd.

Each week, The Bookseller magazine is the incisive and independent source of business intelligence and analysis for the book trade. For publishers, retailers, agents, libraries, national media and festivals, we are the trusted primary source for everything that’s happening in the industry. For years, The Bookseller’s author interviews have profiled many top authors – or those destined to become so, including the then-unknown J K Rowling in 1997.

Subscribers get every issue of the magazine (in print and/or online), plus unlimited access to articles, book charts, previews, rights deals and more on Find out about our subscription packages here.

Our online and in-person events are industry leading and include the British Book Awards and FutureBook.

The Bookseller also runs the Jobs in Books site, where the book trade advertises its vacancies and where those in the trade, or wanting to enter it, look for their next role.
