COSIMO is a specialty publisher for independent authors, not-for-profit organizations and innovative businesses, dedicated to publishing books and publications that inspire, inform, and engage readers around the world. Cosimo was inspired by Cosimo de Medici, the first of the de Medici dynasty, who ignited the most important cultural and artistic revolution in Western history-the Renaissance. This quest for enrichment is the foundation for the work that we do.
