Change of Martinus Nijhoff imprint
Martinus Nijhoff was the name of a prestigious publishing house founded in the 19th century in The Hague (the Dutch poet bearing the same name was a grandson of the company’s founder). Martinus Nijhoff’s publishing program focused on the humanities, the arts, as well as law. In the 1970’s the Nijhoff publishing house was acquired by Kluwer. Within Kluwer, the imprint Martinus Nijhoff Publishers was created for its publication program in international law, human rights law, humanitarian law and international relations.
When the Martinus Nijhoff Publishers program came to Brill from Kluwer in 2003, MNP was retained as one of Brill’s imprints. This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of publication by Brill, and can proudly say that in the past decade the Law program has developed into an important part of the overall Brill portfolio. Concomitant with the introduction of the new typographic style, the Martinus Nijhoff Publishers logo and branding will gradually be replaced by Brill Nijhoff in all books, journals, and associated marketing sites and materials.
