Ann Tanenbaum

Tanenbaum International Literary Agency

I have been in book publishing for over 50 years, working for Viking Press, Random House, ABRAMS, Doubleday International, and Newsweek Books. I've held executive positions in marketing, editorial, and management. My career highlights include planning and escorting Norman and Molly Rockwell on the publicity tour for what became the best-selling ABRAMS book, "Norman Rockwell: Artist and Illustrator" and publishing the first American book on Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Madame Prime Minister by Allan J. Mayer at Newsweek. In 1980, I established Tanenbaum International Publishing Services (TIPS), an agenting and consulting practice that created alliances between art, illustrated, and reference book publishers worldwide. In 2000, I founded with two partners LTD Editions LLC, a visual book agenting and packaging company. In 2010, I folded TIPS and LTD Editions into what is now Tanenbaum International Literary Agency. In addition to representing books on the arts and illustrated children’s books, I have a commitment to nurturing non-fiction projects on current affairs and humanitarian concerns.
