Literary Estates

Anthology's Hilary Strong and Bob Benton lead the UK arm of International Literary Properties which acquires and manages the rights in literary estates, and works to exploit those rights across all media platforms including TV, film and theatre. 

  • International Literary Properties works with authors, managers of literary estates, and individual heirs to help realize the value from book-based intellectual property. ILP acquires all or partial rights to books and book-based intellectual property. They own, nurture and administer a substantial number of properties, many of which are household names, in genres as diverse as mystery, crime, classic literature, non-fiction, and children’s.

    Whether acquiring new properties or exploring ways to bring stories to new audiences, ILP are singularly focused on building long term value in a manner consistent with the spirit in which the works were written. ILP owns the rights to some of the most iconic stories and characters of the last century.
