Litera Publications is an independent publishing house founded in 2000 in Pretoria, South Africa. Through the years our commitment to quality in our product and our service has become known in the South African books industry.

We focus on the genres of biography, autobiography, history, natural history and selected fiction. The house has recently moved to the Western Cape and operates from Somerset West near Cape Town. In her first 16 years Litera has proudly published award-winning Afrikaans authors such as TT Cloete and George Weideman. Some of Litera’s English titles have also found their way into international libraries.

We have launched titles in Europe, and have received favourable reviews in international publications. While our books have always been found in reputable book shops in South Africa and Namibia, selected titles will now be available in Northern America and Canada too.
