What is apebook?

apebook is a small independent publisher from Germany, making beautiful books despite a small budget. The publishing house was founded on 14th of July 2017, exactly 100 years after the opening manifesto for the first Dada-evening.

What does apebook want?

First and foremost, apebook would like to support and spread good literature. This in good faith in the value of this literature, and in good faith in the fact that literature and education contribute to an improvement and beautification of the world. apebook pursues this goal with its program in three ways.

Firstly, in its ApeBook Classics series, apebook offers classics of world literature in German and English as eBooks and paperbacks, in beautiful elaboration and such inexpensive that nearly everybody is able to buy them. Mostly our books are cheaper than those of our competitors, and almost always look better.

Often, these books are published for an extra low introductory price of 0.49 EUR. After a few days the books will be sold at the regular price. And every now and then there is also the ApeDay: many books from the publishing program are offered for a day at a discounted price.

In order not to miss any news, bargains and special offer prices from apebook you can subscribe to the regular and free apebook newsletter.

Secondly, apebook discovers and promotes good and independent contemporary literature, which does not subordinate itself to the mainstream. Special, independent, non-conform, experimental, incredible, fantastic, wonderful literature - far from prevailing trends - that's what we want to do. We prefer to set trends instead of running after them.

Thirdly, through bibliophile special editions, almost forgotten books or wrongly trivialized works shall be made back to what they are: valuable literature and significant cultural heritage.

Speaking of heritage: In order to leave our children not only good literature, but also a healthy environment, apebook supports "Rettet den Regenwald e.V." ("Save the rainforest" - a german environmental organization with international impact). If you buy our books directly via the shop on apebook´s website, 10% of the net proceeds will be donated. That´s good, isn´t it?

What does apebook need?

Looking to the future, this is quite a lot. apebook is still in its infancy. 

And, of course, right at the beginning, a young publisher writes rather red numbers  than black numbers. Room rental, equipment, infrastructure, fees, PR and of course not least the book production - all this means investments that are not covered from the beginning by the book sales.

Actually, we need much more than 800 euros per month. But the money from the subscription crowdfunding will help to cushion incurring costs which have to pe paid by apebook in advance. For example, for the project-related crowdfunding, through which we want to implement our individual bibliophile book projects, videos are necessary to have a chance of success. And there should be a bookcover, too - at least as first draft. 800 euros could help to pay at least a part of the well-earned money to our highly motivated graphic designer...

Even previously necessary activities which still produce additional income could be given up.

In addition, it is indeed the case that we find the possibility of project-related crowdfunding in principle super; But on the other hand the realization of book projects, for which we have decided, should not be completely dependent on the success or failure of the crowdfunding campaigns, but if necessary should be pre-financed by ourselves. Especially for this independence in the implementation of the projects, the regular additional revenues through subscription crowdfunding are a big and important support.

And who knows, maybe with your support even much more will be possible in the future...

Anyway: apebook needs loyal subscribers who want to support the publishing house of the reading ape in its beginnings!
