Beatnik is an invigorating hub of creativity with a talented core staff of designers, photographers and illustrators working together to publish beautiful books.
To ensure we fulfil the visions of the authors we work with, every project with us is a complete collaboration. We’re known for producing vibrant and meaningful books that are exquisitely designed and intimate in their approach. We are continually expanding our small but perfectly formed catalogue that already spans genres as varied as cookery, children’s tales, poetry, art and street culture.
We have a team of talented designers who create our books. We also handle all the production work, which includes editing, arranging the printing, shipping and working with our distributors – all to our high and exacting standards. We have a dedicated publicist who talks to media about Beatnik books and guides authors through the promotional side of book publishing.
When we’re not making books into works of art, we turn our design skills to other areas — including but not limited to annual reports, brochures, or whatever else you, your company, charity, or any other group require. We are always on the lookout for business development and sales opportunities for our authors in New Zealand, and rights opportunities overseas.

EK Books – Books with Heart on Issues that Matter
Five years ago, EK Books set out on a mission to publish children’s books on themes that other publishers fear to touch.
Our books are crafted by authors and illustrators whose backgrounds include teaching and psychology. These creators have a knack for unpacking complex issues, making them engaging and memorable for even our youngest readers.
Of course, while our books often focus on heavy issues, we aren’t afraid to tackle lighter subjects as well. And even the darkest themes contain a message of hope and optimism.
It’s no surprise that our gorgeous books with their great characters and glorious illustrations have seen EK go from strength to strength. We have been recognized by the Children’s Book Council of Australia, were recently nominated for Publisher of the Year at the Bologna Book Fair, and have received coverage in international media including The Guardian. Available in all English speaking countries and in translation across Europe and Asia, EK Books provides hope, heart and entertainment for children worldwide.
