Epigram Books is a Singaporean independent publisher of well-designed and thought-provoking titles. It began as a division of the multiple award-winning communications design firm Epigram, but was registered as a separate entity in 2011 to champion Singaporean literature. The company currently publishes all manner of fiction — novels, short stories, plays, graphic novels, chapter books, picture books — and non-fiction books too.
The company is best known for publishing award-winning titles such as Eisner Award-winning graphic novel The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye; the middle-grade series The Diary of Amos Lee, which has sold more than 240,000 copies worldwide; and Ministry of Moral Panic, the debut short story collection by Amanda Lee Koe which won the Singapore Literature Prize for English Fiction.
Epigram Books also reflects Singapore’s obsession with food by publishing both recipe books and food guides. The imprint Wee Editions was launched to support local designers, photographers and artists through a unique series of compact coffee table books.
The company has also initiated the Epigram Books Fiction Prize in the hopes of uncovering the next great Singaporean novel.
