Papadopoulos Publishing is to set up an imprint in the UK to publish children’s books.
Faros Books will launch in February and plans to publish 10 titles in the first year, building to 15-20 books in 2024.
“The decision to become English language publishers in the first place came after we realised that many of our Greek language picture books were being translated (and published successfully) in other languages, but too few among them in English,” the publisher’s MD told The Bookseller. “English language books output is so huge that very seldom do publishers there seek to translate books (especially children’s’) from other languages. Thus we took the task upon ourselves!”
