to 60 titles a year, and is now well-known enough internationally that
authors from all over the world send their books to SHFP for original
publication under its imprints.

It is a full-fledged publishing house committed to producing
high-quality pictorial books and providing total publishing solutions
for authors and publishers. L&A possesses knowledge and expertise on the
