Cossee International Agency, or CIA, forms part of Cossee Publishers, an independent publishing house situated at the Amstelveld in Amsterdam. The publishing house was established in 2001. Cossee publishes both Dutch and translated fiction and non-fiction. With their selected list, the carefully edited and beautifully designed editions Cossee wants to give their authors the best possible platform and a growing readership.

At the agency we work hard to give books that we are passionate about the possibility to travel around the world: Books from Cossee authors as well as our favourite picks from other independent publishers, such as Das Mag, Koppernik, Pluim and Van Oorschot.

The department is headed by Stella Rieck. It comprises Christoph Buchwald and Eva Cossée, the publishers of Uitgeverij Cossee, and Elaine Michon who handles film and theatre rights.
