In recent years, Lannoo Publishers has established a global presence with its internationally recognised list.

Topics can be grouped in four categories:

Our exciting lifestyle list includes titles by Belgium's best-selling author, Pascale Naessens, whose books have sold so far over 1,5 million times, original craft, mouthwatering gastronomy, international top sellers such as the Gin & Tonic series and inspiring interior design and art. Find out more about Elise De Rijck, whose Bucketlist book sold over 50.000 copies and many more original gift books.

The children’s list is a mixture of bestselling, internationally renowned authors and upcoming new talent, from board books for toddlers to thrilling YA novels. Discover new work by bestselling illustrator, Peter Goes, whose previous title Timeline has already been translated into 14 languages, longsellers by Thé Tjong Khing, whose Cake series has sold already more than 300.000 copies and are available in over 20 languages and established names like Tom Schamp, Pieter Gaudesaboos, Sylvia Vanden Heede, Kathleen Vereecken and many more.

From popular science and essays, such as The New Mental, by Elke Geraerts, whose previous title sold over 15.000 copies to awarded self-help, exciting memoires, history and international topsellers, the non-fiction list has something for every taste. Don’t forget to have a look at The World Book of Happiness 2.0 by Leo Bormans, the first edition of which was translated into 8 languages.

Last but not least, Lannoo Publishers also publishes a selection of entertaining fiction.
