2. CassavaRepublic Press www.cassavarepublic.biz

This is what Cassava Republic Press' refreshing and engaging website have to say about the intecontinental brand:

We set up Cassava Republic in 2006, after a few years of contemplation and planning. African writers were being increasingly published and read overseas, with little knowledge or availability of this new wave of talent in Nigeria. The conversation about African writing was taking place elsewhere. Something had to be done.

Seven years later, we are a small but established publishing brand, with a reputation for bringing out high quality fiction and non-fiction for adults and children alike.

Our mission is to change the way we all think about African writing. We think that contemporary African prose should be rooted in African experience in all its diversity, whether set in filthy-yet-sexy megacities such as Lagos or Kinshasa, in little-known rural communities, in the recent past or indeed the near future. We also think the time has come to build a new body of African writing that links writers across different times and spaces.

It's therefore the right time to ask challenging questions of African writing - where have we come from, where are we now, where are we going? Our role is to facilitate and participate in addressing these questions, as our list grows. We are still just beginning.

Good job, Cassava Republic.

1 Bookcraft Limited

A friend of mine was saying the other day that Wole Soyinka must have bought a larger percentage of Bookcraft Limited since the company publishes all of his latest titles.

BOOKCRAFT has done well for themselves and the publishing industry, providing upcoming publishing houses the necessary template.What we like about the company? If there is one thing we are eulogizing the firm for, it is their taste of quality which exudes in the packaging and presentation of all of their titles.

Established in Nigeria over twenty years ago, BOOKCRAFT has published a large number of titles in a wide variety of subjects art; biography; history; literature; politics; current affairs; for a growing market of discerning, sophisticated and well educated bibliophiles.

BOOKCRAFT has over the years established a distinctive presence in the book market, the uniquely-packaged, reader-friendly design of our books, quickly becoming an instantly recognizable trademark. Well done, BOOKCRAFT.Congratulations.

Re: Top Nigerian Book Publishers Still Active by Chiefpriest1(m): 7:02am On Mar 13, 2017
These are new generation publishers. I recall "Onibonoje" which was king in those days.

"Nelson" was also big and then "African Writers Series", if I am correct.

Then, there was University Press PLC and Literamed.

Those were the days of serious , error-free publishing and less piracy. These days before you finish the manuscript, its already being printed by pirates all over Nigeria.
