ABOUT US

Jozef Publications is a publishing house established in Durrës in 2012. From this year until today it has brought to Albanian readers a large number of publications, from the French classic authors such as Moliere, Voltaire, Victor Hugo, Racine, Corneille, Rostand and others, (masterfully translated by the great connoisseur of the French language, Prokop Gjergo) to the later ones, local and foreign. Historical and scientific monographs also occupy an important place in the fund of our publications. Among the authors who regularly collaborate with Jozef Publications are the well-known scholar Paolo Muner, the poet Jozef Radi (under whose care the complete work of Lazër Radi was published), the historians and archaeologists Hava and Sali Hidri, the historian Romeo Gurakuqi, the professors Angjelin Shtjefni, Valentina Shehu, Agim Shehu, Pirro Prifti, Gjergji Shqau, Robert Kosova, Indrit Bimi, and many others, writers Nikolla Spathari, Rifat Hoxha, Enton Bido, Engjëllushe Sanxhaku, poet Edmond Agolli, poetess Etleva Kupsi (under the care of which we have promoted many young authors), as well as many other writers and researchers from Durrës, Tirana, Shkodra, Elbasan, Kavaja etc.

Jozef Publications is a regular participant in book fairs organized in Albanian territories, where we can mention the Book Fair of Tirana, Prishtina, etc. One of the advantages of Jozef Publishing House is the ability to meet all the requirements of the authors, starting from the quality of the publication and ending with a very important request of theirs, that of the number of copies published. Thanks to the machines it owns (since Jozef Publishing also has its own printing house), it makes possible a maximum quality of publications, both through digital printers and offset machines. Both of these technologies enable publishers to choose the most suitable, ranging from a limited number of copies (via digital printer printing) to large quantities (with offset machines). The publishing process is followed at every stage from the processing of the brought material, editing, layout and design of the cover, to the final printing of the book.

We also pay attention to the distribution of the book, through cooperation with the most prestigious distribution companies and bookstores in our country, such as: Adrion, Albania, ASHTL Dita, Nettrade Albania, etc.
