About Jaca Book

Founded in 1965, Jaca Book is today one of the leading independent italian publishers in the fields of art and human sciences, featuring illustrated books, non-fiction and religious books, innovative children’s books, academic works, foreign fiction and international poetry. Based in Milan, Jaca Book publishes one hundred books a year and today its catalog consists of more than 5,000 titles. Jaca Book has been participating in the Frankfurt Bookfair and London Bookfair every year for more than fifty years, as international co-editions are a major focus of the company. Our illustrated projects, co-edited with the major publishing houses around the world, mainly concern the history of art, architecture, archeology and music. Our name and our logo derive from and represent the leaves and the fruit of the Breadfruit tree, in Brazilian language: Jaca.
