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 have to be arranged. Quite a challenge if you don't have the experience.

We - like no other - can help you publish your book. Whether it is a simple version with powerful content or an extravagant limited edition, at Komma you have come to the right place. 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

We let ourselves be guided in our choice by the level of content and our personal taste.

Because we have a great love for art, photography, cooking and socially relevant subjects, these are the themes we have specialised in. We only focus on books where images play an important role.

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 prizes.

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

We review your request with the team and always come back to you with an answer. If we’re interested in your book, we will first schedule an online meeting to investigate whether there is a fit and a possibility for collaboration.

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.

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


Publishing a book costs money, so an important part of publishing is looking for the best offers (without losing sight of quality) and coming up with a smart earnings model.

We increasingly use crowdfunding to cover the costs of publishing the book. Not only is this a great way to collect money, but it also creates an immediate support base for your book. Because the likeability factor plays an important role in crowdfunding with the author being the more likeable one, you yourself will run the campaign. However, we will advise and assist you in setting up the campaign.

Some editions are also eligible for a fund or subsidy. In consultation together we will determine which funds and/or subsidies may be of interest. In most cases, it is the author who can apply for a fund or subsidie. Sometimes it is the publisher who has to write the application. Some applications can be written jointly.

Other forms of financing include finding sponsors, using an advance subscription, etc. There are various possibilities and 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.
