|Country of origin||Netherlands|
Lemniscaat was founded in 1963 by Jean Louis and Marijke Boele van Hensbroek. The company is currently run by their son Jean Christophe Boele van Hensbroek.[update]
Many Dutch children's authors have had their work published by Lemniscaat, including Jan Terlouw, Thea Beckman, Ingrid Schubert, Dieter Schubert, Lieneke Dijkzeul and Anke Kranendonk. The company has also worked with many illustrators, including Jan Jutte, Alice Hoogstad, Charlotte Dematons and Marije Tolman.
In 2007, the company started to republish Paul Biegel's work but with new illustrations that the company paid for. As a result, Lemniscaat had to pay a lower amount of royalties to Leonie Biegel, Biegel's daughter. In 2012, Lemniscaat filed a preliminary injunction against Biegel's daughter who intended to move her father's work to another publishing house.
