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 announcement of the opening manifesto for the first Dada evening.

apebook has only just become one year old - and only recently came to the public. Before that, no one had ever known of the existence of the publishing house with the ape.

So that no one has to miss any news and offers now, you can subscribe to the regular and free apebook newsletter.

In the first year after its founding, apebook laid the foundation for a small independent publishing house with a fine program. Several titles of the ApeBook Classics (ABC) are already available as low priced eBooks and paperback editions. And also the first projects of contemporary literature are about to be realized.

What does apebook want?

First and foremost, apebook would like to support and spread good literature, in good faith in the value of this literature, and 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, it offers classics of world literature in German and English as eBooks and paperbacks, in beautiful preparation and so inexpensive that nearly every one is able to afford them.

Secondly, apebook discovers and promotes good and independent contemporary literature, which does not subordinate itself to the mainstream.

Thirdly, through bibliophile special editions apebook wants to make almost forgotten or wrongly trivialized works 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 at the beginning. 

For example, the PCs, along with their software, which we use to make our books, are quite old and must urgently exchanged for new equipment, a little more "state of the art". It takes time and nerves when computers or programs simply fall out in the middle of the work process...

New premises would also be necessary for further development. Currently, apebook is still being built out of a study in a small, somewhat down-dated old coal mine house...

A next development step, which is to be tackled, is the connection to the stationary book trade. apebook wants to appear from the beginning with books of remarkably high quality and originality in the bookshops.

In order to get in contact with the corresponding distributors, already existing bibliophile books are necessary. Such books, however, cost quite a lot of money in the production and must be financed first by Crowdfunding and corresponding own investment.

Crowdfunding for Crowdfunding

Actually, we need much more than 200 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 book cover, too - at least as a first draft. 200 euros could help to pay our ambitious graphic designer at least a part of his royalty ...

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 if we at first receive 200 Euro per month through your support - who knows, perhaps with your help there will be much more possible in the future...

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

Apebook needs you! And you need good books! Each book a world.
