Dettaglio espositore


AKIARA was founded in Barcelona in February 2018 by Inês Castel-Branco, continuing her vision as publisher at Pequeño Fragmenta, with books translated into over ten languages. ''AKIARA'' refers to the expression 'here and now' ('aqui i ara' in Catalan, 'aquí y ahora' in Spanish - but written with a K, to make it more playful, as children's books should be!), and to the Japanese name Akira ?, meaning 'bright'. AKIARA publishes beautifully-illustrated children's books focusing on ecology, education, social justice, tales from other cultures, philosophy, psychology, and mindfulness. With inspiring texts and illustrations, its books stimulate children's and teenagers' sense of wonder while encouraging the art of reading, thinking, debating, contemplating, and getting to know themselves.
