Let's make a book together

Making a book involves a lot of work. You need text, photography and a design. Then the book has to be edited, printed, bound and distributed. PR and marketing must be arranged. Quite a challenge if you don't have the experience.

We - like no other - can help you publish your book. With 30 years of experience, we possess all the necessary knowledge. In addition, we have a large and interesting network of copywriters, editors, photographers, designers, printers, etc. at our disposal and we always know how to connect you to the right people.

Our specialism

It is not for nothing that Komma qualifies as 'No ordinary publisher'. We like to think outside the box, believe in quality over quantity and the words 'that's impossible' don’t enter our vocabulary. As a result, our special editions are regularly awarded with prizes. Whether it is a simple version with powerful content or an extravagant limited edition, at Komma you have come to the right place.

Because we have a great love for art, photography and cooking, these are the themes we have specialised in. We produce books featuring (renowned) artists, photographers and chefs. We also focus on special corporate books. For corporate book options, please look under 'Productions for companies'.

You share your idea with Komma and then...?

We review your request and always come back to you with an answer. We base our decision on the level of content and whether your book matches our specialisms.

If we’re interested in your book, we will first schedule an online meeting. We will discuss your wishes for the book and share our ideas. We'll also suggest a designer, make a step-by-step plan and discuss the follow-up.

Based on your idea, we will pair you with a designer we think is the best fit. We have several designers in our network that we like to work with. If you have a designer in mind, we will assess their quality first.


Publishing a book costs money. Please try and understand that the production costs for making a book at Komma are often relatively higher because we do not make 'standard' books. With every publication, we will look for a form that best showcases its content. We regularly use, among other things, special materials and special binding methods.

There are various possibilities to take care of the book’s funding. In consultation with you, we will look at what is the best fit for you and your book.


We make sure that your book is registered and stocked at the Centraal Boekhuis. In addition, we will do our utmost to get your book on sale in as many places as possible. With our years of experience and large network, we know exactly where national (and international) opportunities and possibilities lie.

Your book will also be offered on our website and at bol.com.
