Atlantic Books is an independent British publishing house. It was founded by Toby Mundy in February 2000 and published its first book in May 2001. It has since developed a list that has a world-wide reputation for quality, originality and breadth, and includes fiction, history, politics, memoir and current affairs. It won ‘Imprint and Editor of the Year’ at the British Books Awards in 2005 and 2009, and was ‘Independent Publisher of the Year’ in 2009.
In 2009 Atlantic Books entered a partnership with Australia’s largest independent publisher Allen & Unwin. Atlantic Books are proud to represent key Allen & Unwin titles from their adult list in the UK.
In 2010 Atlantic launched a new genre fiction imprint, Corvus, introducing the world of crime, fantasy, historical and women’s fiction into the Company’s expanding list, and satisfying the market’s increasing thirst for ebooks.
In 2010, Atlantic Books also began publishing a small selection of books on behalf of Grove/Atlantic Inc. in the UK under the Grove Press UK imprint.
