About the group

The Alpina Publishing Group was founded in 1998. It includes Alpina Publisher, Alpina Non-Fiction, Alpina PRO, Alpina.Prose, Alpina.Children, and the digital division Alpina Digital.

The group's mission is to spread knowledge and create technologies that help people develop themselves and change the world for the better.

We are convinced that everyone has the need to constantly develop and acquire knowledge. That is why we strive to help our readers make their lives fuller and more interesting.

Аbout the philosophy

Each publishing division has a comprehensive approach to working with its authors. Each editorial team has book producers who support the authors: they help them to overcome psychological blocks and give advice on texts and their structure. Each publishing house provides marketing and PR support to its authors and their books, works with the media, bloggers, bookstores, and partners, organises interesting presentations and meetings with readers, and promotes books in foreign markets. Our publishing rights department works with literary agents and foreign publishers to sell the rights to publish books abroad.

The Alpina publishing group's marketing practices are up there with the best in terms of creativity. We offer our authors opportunities that they might not get with larger publishers.
