About Us

Gail Spilsbury and Yael Kats founded Bergamot Books in 2003 to develop, edit, and print art historical books. In 2011 Bergamot expanded to handle print-on-demand and e-books, in addition to offering full editorial services to authors and publishers.

Spilsbury has edited books for the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Art, National Geographic, Rizzoli Publications, the Whitney Museum, and the Peabody Essex Museum. She has helped numerous authors develop their books for publication. She is the author of Sid’s Book about Me; That Year in Boston; Quartetto Sabino (in Italian); A Washington Sketchbook; and Rock Creek Park. Her recent fiction podcast set in Boston, Red Line, is available on iTunes or redlinepodcast.com.
