The Quarto Group has opened a new office in Brighton’s town centre this week.
The new space is home to 60 creative people (pictured below) working across editorial and design, production, marketing and foreign sales, focusing on developing and publishing non-fiction illustrated books. It brings together seven imprints of The Quarto Group: Quintet Publishing, Global Book Publishing, Ivy Press, Ivy Kids, Leaping Hare Press, Quid Publishing and RotoVision.
Quarto’s Brighton office is led by David Breuer, director of Quarto International Co-Editions Group and a long-standing Brighton resident.
Breuer said: “It is very exciting to open such a big creative hub here in Brighton. Quarto has always fostered a diverse and local creative model and we look forward to finding local inspiration and working with local talent to help develop great content and publish beautiful books. Our intention is to become a magnet for all creative people in the region.”
More than two decades ago Breuer was commercial director for the Royal Pavilion, Art Gallery and Museums of Brighton, and was heavily involved in Brighton’s creative activities across art, drama, performance and poetry - he still receives correspondence over the "highly influential" Captain Beefheart exhibition he curated for the museum in the 1990s.
