Seagull Books (estd 1982) has been crafting books with an eye to both exceptional content and radical design. What began as an instinctive and highly risky business of publishing books—books on theatre, visual arts, alternative cinema, philosophy,culture—continues to be a passionately felt need of the hour: manuscripts that need to see the light of day, to reach a readership, to stimulate minds, to change outlooks.
The Seagull School of Publishing is a natural culmination of this passion.
The Seagull Foundation for the Arts, in association with Seagull Books and established the Seagull School of Publishing in order to share publishing skills and philosophy with those who may wish to take up a career in the industry.
Supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy, New Delhi, from 2012 to 2017, currently the school is supported by the Ford Foundation.
