About Little Gestalten
“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.” These words from George Bernard Shaw are at the heart of Little Gestalten's vision. Pairing compelling stories with striking visuals, our picture books, nonfiction, illustrated stories, and pop-ups captivate children of a variety of ages and appeal to discerning adults.
Gestalten continues to actively reimagine the way in which we approach publishing. With our extensive range of titles, we not only seek to enhance and to enrich our reader's lives, but to continually engage with the surrounding creative landscape.
Our origin story began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both our content and our expertise has widened. Today, using a myriad of observations of culture, people, art, and other intimate inspirational informants, we document and anticipate vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design & fashion, escapism, food & beverages, travel, and contemporary art. In 2014, Little Gestalten joined the literary ranks and ensured that there was a place for readers of all ages within the world of Gestalten.
The Gestalten narrative exists beyond the textual realm; regardless of the medium at hand, Gestalten wishes to inform and inspire our community. We welcome you to enter Gestalten's world of creative culture whether between our pages, indulging in images and films online, or at one of our international events. We look forward to the result: mutual inspiration.
