About Glitterati Incorporated

Glitterati Incorporated is an intellectual property producer and publisher for books, ancillary gift products, and electronic media. Glitterati knows how to originate, produce, and sell some of the most innovative books and book products in the industry. Working both nationally and internationally with the needs of publishers, corporate entities and brands who want brand extension, and retailers with wide recognition, Glitterati builds products that address the market needs of consumers, while at the same time exhibiting the highest editorial, design, and manufacturing standards.

Primarily concentrating in the realm of illustrated books, Glitterati produces for adults and children alike-if it's illustrated at the highest quality, whether by art photographer, illustrator, or ingenious draftsman, or written by a luminary in his or her field-it probably belongs on the Glitterati list.

With a worldwide reputation for some of the most celebrated, successful and stunning visual products of our time including beautiful D-I-Y "T-Shirt Makeovers" by Carmia Marshall and Carmen Webber, the bestselling Trilogy by Alexandra Villard de Borchgrave (including "Healing Light," "Heavenly Order" and "Beloved,") the famed Memoir of Villa D'Este's Jean Salvadore, "My Dolce Vita," and Douglas Kirkland's extraordinary photo essay, "Coco Chanel: Three Weeks/1962;" the people at Glitterati know how to create branded and high-volume consumer trade books and product and place them in the market for fast sales as frontlist and longevity as backlist.

Our diverse offerings of product cover areas from the high arts to popular culture, and include everything from fashion, architecture, design, photography, cookery, lifestyle, collecting, gardening, children's books to contemporary culture. Our goal is to always extend boundaries beyond what has been done before, making sure that we create at the same time deluxe products of broad appeal. We produce books that are a pleasure to sell and a pleasure to own.

The Principal

Glitterati Incorporated was initiated by Marta Hallett, who has worked for more than three decades on the international playing field of illustrated trade book product. Having instigated some successful longstanding publishing programs and worked as an independent producer in the past as well as house publisher for HarperCollins, Smithmark Publishers and S Editions (a division of Stewart Tabori & Chang) and Rizzoli International Publications, she has produced children's and adult product that is highly regarded throughout the field.

Strategic Partners

Glitterati recognizes that in today's marketplace, alignment for joint ventures is the most productive means of making sure that high-quality product reaches as many interested consumers as possible. Illustrated product isn't just for bookstores anymore; as the consumer community becomes more and more sophisticated because of bombardment by visual imagery, there is a wider and wider opportunity to sell and distribute illustrated product. To this end, Glitterati has established a broad base of strategic alliances with like-minded entrepreneurs-whether authors, artists, corporations, or retailers-in an effort to make sure that every Glitterati product gets the widespread exposure it deserves.
