Founded in 1983 as a publisher of fine coffee table books, Beyond Words currently releases around 15 new titles in the Mind/Body/Spirit category each year in partnership with Atria Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. We also serve as a wholesale distributor of Beyond Words books to international booksellers and retailers, including Costco, Indigo Books in Canada, and Cygnus Books in the UK, as well as over 3,000 independent bookstores and gift or specialty shops around the world.

We are proud to have published several books in recent years that have been blockbuster bestsellers. "The Secret" has been on the NY Times list for more than a year and continues to be the top-selling book of all time in its category. Dr. Emoto’s "Hidden Messages in Water" was also a groundbreaking success, making the NY Times bestseller list for 25 weeks in 2005. We look forward to bringing many more great titles forward in the months and years ahead.
