How to Book in Berlin, 2023 serves as a comprehensive guide to bookmaking and publishing, offering insights we wished we had when we were starting out. It includes information on research methods, funding strategies, production techniques and distribution approaches, all underpinned by the perspectives and advice of experienced publishers.
