Find Printing and Publishing expertise in Namibia

The Namibian publishing industry has predominately focused on producing educational materials in the past; with global publishing company Macmillan operating in the country via Gamsberg Macmillan Publishers, which is based in Windhoek. Another educational publisher worthy of note is Zebra Publishing whose main aim is to ‘exceed the educational material development requirements of Ministry of Education’. The University of Namibia and the Polytechnic of Namibia publish scientific journals. In 2012 a new avenue was opened up in the Namibian publishing industry when Wordweaver Publishing House, the country’s first fiction publisher, was launched. The aim of Wordweaver is to highlight the talent of Namibian writers, who have largely been disregarded in the past.
