Publisher and Bookseller
nai010 publishers was founded more than a decade ago as the publications department of the Netherlands Architecture Institute, but soon established a distinctive and independent profile. The NAi Booksellers bookshop in the foyer of the Netherlands Architecture Institute is managed by nai010 publishers.
Our Target Groups
The target readership for nai010 publishers includes architects, planning professionals, artists and designers - professionally active or in training - as well as a growing number of readers among the general public. Our publications are distinctive for their relevance to the target groups and for their stimulating contribution to contemporary socio-cultural debate, thanks to their innovative and interdisciplinary character.
Quality goes without saying for nai010 publishers. Our books are the products of dynamic interchange between commissioner, author, publisher and designer. Many of our books have won awards. They regularly appear among the nominations and prize-winners in the Best Dutch Book Design awards, presented annually by the CPNB (Foundation for the Collective Promotion of the Dutch Book), and have also gained international recognition from the Stiftung Buchkunst in Leipzig in the Best World Book Design category.
