Lantana Publishing is a young, independent publishing house giving new, aspiring and award-winning Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic authors and illustrators a platform to publish.

In the UK, almost a third of school children identify as BAME and yet fewer than 5% of published children’s books feature BAME characters. Lantana is proud to show children of colour that they deserve to see themselves in the books they read and authors of colour that their stores matter.

Lantana Publishing is certainly a trail blazer in this area and so many of their books are now award winners. Their philosophy is keep it small, do it right!
