EDEL IMPRINTS & PARTNERS
With locations in Hamburg, Berlin and Munich, the Edel Publishing Group is one of Germany’s largest independent book suppliers. The Edel Publishing Group includes ZS Verlag with its licensed brands Dr. Oetker, Kochen & Genießen and Phaidon by ZS, as well as the publishing houses Edel Books, Eden Books, Edel Kids Books, Edel Colors and Edel Elements. In addition to Wort & Bild Verlag, the influencer network GBN Trends, falkemedia, Distanz Verlag, Olivia Verlag and Junior Medien are customer publishers of the Edel Publishing Group.
With a diverse range of products in the guidebook, popular nonfiction and children’s book categories, the publishers have built up a loyal readership, enormous traction, a broad presence in the trade, and top positions in the cookbook and guidebook market. Strong brands such as Ernährungs-Docs, Apotheken Umschau, Thermomix®, and Pettersson & Findus, but also prominent authors from the sports segment (Björn Werner, Stefan Kretzschmar), well-known TV faces (Alfons Schuhbeck, Robert Atzorn, Andrea Kiewel), and social media stars (Sophia Thiel, Sarah & Dominic Harrison) stand for our high-quality books, which always have their finger on the pulse in terms of content.
Read about fascinating people and interesting sports, culture and general knowledge topics. We love bestsellers, and we want to get as many people as possible passionate about reading them too.
Edel Kids Books
We publish imaginatively written children’s books by successful authors and about well-known characters from the big and small screen. Edel Kids Books – it’s a big world out there!
‟Quality is the best recipe for success,” has been Dr. Oetker’s motto for more than 125 years. Our new Dr. Oetker books follow in this tradition, but also set new trends.
Good ideas, innovative book concepts and professional implementation, an experienced sales force – all under one roof!
We’re the publisher for bestselling books about sports – for athletes and experts alike we’re the first address to transform creative ideas into products!
We believe in the power of a good story. Our books are about everyday heroes, captains weathering a storm, fishers on the Bering Sea or sailors around the Cape Horn. Whatever we do, our heart and the sea is in it.
