Imagnary House is a publisher and bookstore of creative children's and YA fiction and non-fiction in South Africa.

We're a boutique publisher and bookstore with a special focus on local children’s and YA literature, as we have a heart for children’s literacy and imaginations in Southern Africa. 

We were founded in April 2016 by Brad Harris, who built the premise of Imagnary House on the back of his experience working with traditional publishers and self-publishing agents. Noticing a hole left in Africa for children's and YA literature, he focused his own literary passion towards this end... enter, Imagnary House. 

One day, we hope to make the children's books that we love available in every part of our beautiful country. We believe that enjoying the ability to read is the right of a child from all languages, areas, cultures, and backgrounds.
