Book Proposals

To propose a book for Gestalten, send us a brief description with synopsis, content structure, a list of contributors, and any ideas you might have about the format to proposals [at] Be sure to include a selection of images to help us best understand the visual quality of the project, as well as some background information about yourself.

At Little Gestalten, we are always on the lookout for fresh ideas and engaging illustrations that will be enjoyed both by young readers and their discerning parents. This can range from picture-book submissions and finished manuscripts to ideas that are still being developed. Prepare a proposal, then get in touch with our editors at littlegestalten [at]

Our editors will review each proposal. Please bear in mind that answering might take some time.

One last thing: We love all things print but please do not send book proposals in the post. Please send your proposal as PDF to the email above.
