Angry Robot Books are proud to reveal our new logo, designed by Kate Cromwell, which comes as part of an overall rebranding including the launch of an upgraded website, enabling the direct sale of physical books.
Formed in 2009, Angry Robot Books have undergone some key adjustments throughout the years but, since joining Watkins Media in 2014 and coming under the leadership of Associate Publisher Eleanor Teasdale in 2019, our award-winning science fiction, fantasy, and genre-boundary pushing company is thriving. This new logo represents the history of Angry Robot Books whilst simultaneously looking forward.
With initiatives such as Clonefiles – offering free ebooks to accompany any independent bookshop physical purchase – we have a cherished legacy of serving the book-buying public, and this new, upgraded website with physical sales capacity deepens our direct connection between publisher and customer.
These developments come at an exciting time for Angry Robot Books as summer 2021’s runaway hit, The Coward by Stephen Aryan, is already in its third reprint and the October super-lead, Un-su Kim’s The Cabinet, continues to bask in reviews including selection for the Best Science Fiction of 2021 in The Washington Post. With 2022 books crossing geographical, figurative, mythological, and atmospheric borders, the future seems bright!
Etan Ilfeld, Managing Director of Watkins Media said “Being part of the SFF community has always been at the forefront of Angry Robot Books. 2022 is the beginning of a new stage in AR’s legacy, and this new logo and website is at the heart of it all.”
