Established in 1988 by publishing veteran, Sandy Ferguson Fuller, Alp Arts Co. first became recognized by the industry as children's book specialists offering professional editorial critiques, manuscript development, marketing, and consulting services. We expanded as a literary agency in 1994.
Our passion and expertise is children's picture books, however we represent authors and illustrators for all children's and young adult genres, fiction and nonfiction.
Sandy Ferguson Fuller is also a picture book author and illustrator who began her career in 1972 at Yale as a student of Maurice Sendak.
In 2012, Sandy was approached to sell English/N.A. rights in the U.S., so she renewed her previous international contacts and is now representing three publishing groups in Germany/Austria, Slovenia and the Netherlands. Please see our "Foreign Rights" page for more information.
We invite you to explore our website, and and we'd love to hear from you!
We're still learning how to build a website (it's about time!), but we want you to be able to find us on the web. So please bear with us while we design and polish our pages. In the future, we will post links to our authors' and illustrators' web sites, links to strategic children's book organizations, news about forthcoming publications, information about our editorial services and workshops, industry news, and even an online shop for out-of-print and used children's books.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. You can email or phone us or even send us a snail mail (information below).
