Since 1971. Workman is a publisher that's always around big ideas. B. Kliban's Cat, The Official Preppy Handbook, The Silver Palate Cookbook, the original Page-A-Day Calendars, the What to Expect books, BRAIN QUEST – landmark bestsellers such as these reflect a knack for publishing books and calendars that lead with a commitment to publish them with a mixture of care and innovation. The bright, appealing trade-paperback format has succeeded with high standards of design and production. Authors who are authorities, who tour extensively and are spokespeople for their subjects, enjoy books of unexpected formats, unique packaging of books with objects, and yet above all, value through conscientious, aggressive pricing.
