We Publish Kids Books & YA Books
Imagnary House is a boutique publisher and bookstore with a special focus on children’s books. We have a big heart for children’s literacy and imaginations in South Africa. One day, we hope to make the children's books that we love available in every part of our beautiful country. Because, we believe that enjoying the ability to read is the right of a child from all languages, areas and cultures.
Get excited! On the 1st of July 2017, we're opening up our submissions, and are looking to build up our publication list for the next 2 years. We're looking for stories that are fun and imaginative, but also address current societal issues for children. We want simple stories that mean something and can feed positively into our children's futures. However, we're not after didactic or educational texts, and definitely lean towards manuscripts that can travel.
On the 17th of June 2017, we're collaborating with Sk8 for Gr8 to bring the ‘Add Colour’ campaign to life. The ‘Add Colour’ campaign is about encouraging design thinking and entrepreneurial skills in South African youth by using the arts. Having partnered with the City of Cape Town, this campaign will begin in Atlantis with a collaborative mural, being created by Liebet Jooste of Liebetland: A Colouring Book.
