Brighton-based publishing company Salariya has marked its 27th birthday with the sale of more than 11 million books.
Salariya publishes children’s information, fiction and baby books, as well as art manuals and general information books for all ages, both domestically and internationally.
Since the release of their first title, Avoid Becoming an Aztec Sacrifice in 1989, Salariya has expanded rapidly and today publishes works in more than 30 countries worldwide.
This year marks another milestone, with the release of its 1000th title: an addition to the illustrated children's history series You Wouldn’t Want To Be, created by company founder and director David Salariya, called You Wouldn’t Want To Be Guy Fawkes!
Salariya was founded in 1989 by illustrator David Salariya and, since its launch, has been shortlisted for several awards – in 2010 Salariya was named the Independent Publisher’s Guild Children’s Publisher of the Year.
David Salariya said: “When I launched the business 27 years ago I never expected to see such growth – it’s been an incredible journey for the team. 2016 marks another important milestone for us as we can celebrate the sale of more than 11 million books since 2000 and the publication of our 1000th title, both of which will coincide with the launch of our new website that will allow us to sell directly to our customers.
“With almost 500 titles currently in print, and many new projects in development, we are looking forward to welcoming even more children into the wonderful world of reading.”
