The Little Bookroom publishes travel guides that provide an imaginative entrée into the world’s best-loved cities. The books celebrate a sense of place: the authentic, the unique, the small, the historic, and the local. They appeal to those travellers who are interested in getting a real “feel” for a city, who are willing to meander a bit, to wander away from the well-known landmarks.

Some of the books focus on major destinations—Paris, New York, London—and encourage readers to go off the beaten path. They explore one aspect of a major city, such as style, cuisine, wine, or architecture and decor. Other titles introduce readers to less frequented destinations, such as The Authentic Bars, Cafes and Restaurants of Buenos Aires and Food Wine Budapest.

In 2008 The Little Bookroom launched a new series, The Terroir Guides; these discerning guides, written by renowned food writers with extensive regional expertise, explore locations in depth and focus on the way in which local influences singularly impact a region’s food and wine. They are also the English language publisher of France’s beloved Pudlo guides — written by Gilles Pudlowski, France’s revered food critic. The Little Bookroom publishes 12-15 titles annually.

Described as “definitive guide books and works of love” by Vogue, The Little Bookroom’s travel guides are intimate, thorough, and utterly unique.

The New York Review Children's Collection began in 2003 in an attempt to reward readers who have long wished for the return of their favourite titles and to introduce those books to a new generation of readers. Averaging six books a year, the line publishes picture books for preschoolers through to chapter books and novels for older children. Praised for their elegant design and sturdy bindings, these books have set a new standard for the definition of a child's “classic.”

Among the titles you will find The House of Arden by the great E. Nesbit; several titles by the award-winning team of Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire, including their Book of Norse Myths and Book of Animals; James Thurber's The Thirteen Clocks and The Wonderful O, both with illustrations by Marc Simont; and James Cloyd Bowman’s Newbery Honor Book, Pecos Bill: The Greatest Cowboy of All Time.

The New York Times has called The New York Review of Books "the country's most successful intellectual journal." According to the Times, "The secret of its success is this: its editors' ability to get remarkable writers and thinkers, many of them specialists in their fields, to write lucidly for lay readers on an enormous range of complex, scholarly and newly emerging subjects, issues and ideas."

With the NYRB Collections, an occasional book series, some of the finest writing in science, philosophy, history, politics, the arts, and literature from the Review's contributors has been brought together. Included in the NYRB Collections series are volumes by such distinguished writers as Freeman Dyson, Thomas Powers, Martin Filler, Joseph Kerman, Mark Danner, Gary Wills, and Joan Didion.
