Coen Sligting

Agent and Sales

A chance encounter with Steven has resulted in a long-term cooperation.

Growing up in a family of painters and theatre makers, I was naturally linked to the world of art from an early age. I was trained as a photographer, but in 1986, after many detours, I ended up in the book business.

In the 1990s, I started importing and distributing special books, especially in the field of art and architecture. In addition, I created a market for several American publishers in Germany, Belgium, Italy and Spain, among other countries... and with success. Soon, selling beautiful books became my passion.

Because distribution is increasingly more organised centrally, I’ve increasingly started focusing on representing Uitgeverij Komma and contributing ideas that result in new unique projects.
