Ben Schott

United States

Ben Schott is an international best-selling author, columnist, photographer, designer and consultant, designing and typesetting virtually all of his work. After graduating with a double first in social and political sciences from Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, he spent most of his twenties freelancing as a portrait photographer for the Independent, The Times, The Sunday Times and many other editorial and commercial clients. In 2002, his focus turned to writing when he was inspired to transform a Christmas card into a book. Within weeks of its publication, the book—Schott’s Original Miscellany—was named a Sunday Times best seller. And over the next decade, Ben released a series of miscellanies and almanacs, along with the book Schottenfreude, altogether selling more than 2 million copies in 21 languages. His most recent works include the critically acclaimed continuation novels Jeeves and the King of Clubs (2018) and Jeeves and the Leap of Faith (2020).
