Description

Icon’s imprints include Wizard Books, which publishes children’s books, primarily the original and best interactive gamebook series Fighting Fantasy, by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone, and Corinthian, our newish sports imprint. Corinthian’s successes have so far included the Irish William Hill Sports Prize winner Crashed & Byrned, and Luca Caioli’s biographies, Torres and Messi.


Company description
Icon Books is an independent British publisher formed in 1992 which publishes popular, engaging and sometimes provocative non-fiction for adults. Icon were, for a number of years, best known for a series of illustrated, witty but intelligent guides to subjects such as Freud, Postmodernism and Einstein. Originally called … for Beginners, and now Introducing, the series is known throughout the world and is the cornerstone of Icon’s success.
The company has, however, moved in the past decade into more orthodox trade publishing, producing many stand-alone successes. We have been proud to gain a reputation amongst the trade in recent years for being a brave, aggressive, forward-thinking and original publisher with a knack for succeeding in many diverse areas.
We have particular strengths in politics, popular philosophy and psychology, history, sport, humour and, especially, popular science.
