Marginesy Publishing House was founded in 2008 as a family company. Within the first years of operating it made a significant contribution to the Polish publishing market – thanks to the interesting Polish and foreign titles, elaborated editorial design of the covers and well-conducted promotional activities.
Our offer consists of richly illustrated autobiographies and biographies, novels by Polish and foreign authors, often based on true stories, detective books and children books. One of the biggest market successes was a monumental novel by a Catalan writer – Jaume Cabre – „I Confess”, published in 2012, which sold in 50 000 copies and was on the bestsellers’ lists for weeks. We continue with promoting this author in Poland by publishing his books - „The Voices of Pamano” (2014) and "Senyoria" (scheduled for 2015) – with a contribution of a master translation into Polish from Anna Sawicka.
The quality of books is our brand message. We invest a lot of time and energy to make our books both beatiful and pleasurable, as well as provide the readers with the content of the best quality. That is why we co-operate with the best translators and editors, while the graphic aspects are supervised by one of the most renowned artists in the field – Anna Pol.
It is our goal to reach the extensive audience of readers. Meetings with the authors are held in most prestigious venues, as well as libraries and community centres in small towns.
Our books are ranked high in the sales results, but they are also recognized by the jurors of the most important literary awards: „Mała matura” by Janusz Majewski was „The Book of the Year 2011”, „Gustaw i ja” by Magdalena Zawadzka was among the Bestsellers of the Year 2011. Polish Section of IBBY recognized „Oro” by Marcel A.Marcel as the Best Book for the Young Readers. „Gajos” by Elżbieta Baniewicz was awarded „The Fredro Pen” for the Most Beautiful Book of 2013. The Award of Wrocław Book Fairs went to „Zawód fotograf” by Chris Niedenthal (2011) and „Nasierowska” by Zofia Turowska (2009).
In 2013 Bonnier, a Swedish publishing house, invited Marginesy to co-operate – in this way our publishing house became a part of an international company, maintaining its independence in the name, form of operating and the publishing offer.
