Get to Know Us

Niyogi Books welcomes you to the wonderful world of books

which are culturally and traditionally rich, varied in content with a world-class design and production. Established in 2004, Niyogi Books is an internationally reputed publishing house with over 700 titles – and the list continues to grow. We always strive to give equal emphasis on both the textual content and visuals within our illustrated books.

In 2018, Niyogi Books launched three imprints respectively: Olive Turtle (English Fiction), Thornbird (English Translation) and Paper Missile (English nonfiction).

With the introduction of the three imprints, Niyogi Books strives to enrich the categories of books ranging from social science, self-help books, works of fiction, as well as English translations of modern classics from different Indian Languages, thus exploring the many genres of the literary world.

In January 2019, Niyogi Books launched its Hindi imprint, Bahuvachan, dedicated to our Hindi titles, thereby celebrating the state language, Hindi, which is also one of the most spoken languages in the world. It also upholds the banner for the multilingual nation that India is.

With an aim to provide fun reading to children and young adults, Niyogi Books will be launching its youngest imprint Perky Parrot, in December 2023. Reading Corner, our colourful quarterly newsletter, introduces current and forthcoming books and authors, and covers book launches and events.

This is clearly reflected in the harmonious relationship we have with our authors, our readers and our partners in book selling and distribution. Niyogi Books’ commitment to serve everyone better has prompted us to open the first sales outlet at the heart of well-known book centre in Kolkata.
