Trusted stewards
of literary legacies

International Literary Properties works with authors, playwrights, managers of literary estates, and individual heirs to help realize the value from book and play-based intellectual property.

We acquire all or partial rights to literary intellectual property, including books, plays and books of musicals. We own, nurture and champion a substantial number of properties, many authored by household names, in genres as diverse as mystery, crime, classic literature, non-fiction, and children’s.

Our experienced team works closely with award-winning TV, film and stage producers across the world.
