About Us

About Fraktura Publishing House

Publishing house Fraktura was founded in 2002. Our mission is to foster human’s essential need for storytelling. With over eighteen years of experience, we aspire to use our platform of an established Croatian publisher to instigate all generations to read by offering them best of high-quality literature, both fiction and non-fiction, translated and regional. We publish established authors as well as contemporary classics, but we also love to discover new, emerging voices. Our stories are mostly yet untold or silenced, stories worth telling. Our stories are important ones and we believe in each one of them.

With uncompromising quality as a main guiding principle, every year we publish sixty titles and organize more than hundred promotions with both regional and international authors. In the creative process of bookmaking, from the very first day we have put a lot of thought, effort and love in every step of the way – writing, translating, editing, proofreading, layout, design, printing, distribution and promotion. Our experience tells us that our customers appreciate quality recommendation the most. Because we care about the life of every single book, we give a lot of attention to creating its best channel to the reader. Our regional authors have won more than seventy national and international prizes, making Fraktura one of the most awarded national publishing houses. Two of our editors have been awarded with the most prestigious national award Kiklop, as editors of the year. Our graphic designers, illustrators and translators are the most prominent ones in the field. To keep up with times and to approach younger audience, in 2013 we launched Festival of World Literature that takes place every September in Zagreb and hosts internationally acclaimed world authors.

We represent Croatian authors on foreign markets. By now the works by Mirko Kovač, Miljenko Jergović, Slavenka DrakulićSemezdin MehmedinovićIgor Štiks and many others have been translated into a dozen languages including Italian, English, Spanish, Dutch, French..., and published in numerous editions.
