Sarah Handelman is a book editor who partners with publishers, organisations, and individuals to bring art, architecture, and design into people’s lives and libraries. She works across all media to create spaces for the best scholarship, ideas, and writing to flourish.

This might take the form of a picture book, printed journal or online magazine, a volume of scholarly essays, an exhibition catalogue, identity refresh for an architectural practice, or an online audio experience that goes behind the scenes of a drawing.
