We are the largest general publisher in the South African book market, and the leader in adult fiction, nonfiction, children’s and youth fiction.
We mainly publish books for the general trade market in South Africa, but we also publish literature and grammar textbooks for schools. We publish across all genres, mostly in Afrikaans and English. To a lesser extent, we also publish books in some of the local African languages.
Our publishing lists cover everything from popular to literary fiction and nonfiction, from romance novels to political exposés and biographies, from cookbooks to books on health and gardening, as well as humour and books aimed at young adults. We also publish picture books, mass market children’s books and dictionaries.
