The Overlook Press is an American publishing house based in New York, New York, which considers itself "a home for distinguished books that had been 'overlooked' by larger houses".
It was formed in 1971 by Peter Mayer, who had previously worked at Avon and Penguin Books, where he was chief executive officer from 1978 to 1998.
A general-interest publisher, Overlook has over one thousand titles in print, including fiction, history, biography, drama, and design. Overlook's publishing program consists of nearly 100 new books per year, evenly divided between hardcovers and trade paperbacks. Imprints include Tusk Books, whose format was designed by Milton Glaser.
In 2002, Overlook acquired Ardis Publishing, a publisher of Russian literature in English. Overlook also took ownership of the British publishing company Gerald Duckworth and Company Ltd.
In 2007, Overlook's publisher Peter Mayer was the recipient of the New York Center for Independent Publishing's Poor Richard Award for outstanding contributions to independent book publishing.
After Mayer's death in 2018, The Overlook Press was sold to Abrams Books, which is part of French publisher La Martinière Groupe.
