September Publishing has bought John Howkins’ Invisible - The Future of Work, about the increasing importance of the often invisible creative process in the work place.
Hannah MacDonald at September Publishing bought UK and Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada) from Charlie Viney at The Viney Shaw Agency.
In the book Howkins, who is also the author of the seminal The Creative Economy (Penguin), will argue that the highest paid, most desirable work is now "both personal and nomadic, requiring new kinds of creative thinking and self-awareness".
"Power has - in effect - transferred from the boardroom to the individual and Howkins helps readers to identify their value, their tribe and the unseen, never-ending thought processes that define a fulfilling work life," the publisher said.
September will publish in spring 2020.
