A publishing company that envisions enduring and sustainable publishing business —
Like sanzini, which in Korean means aged hawk.
In Korean, sanzini refers to an aged native Korean hawk that is known to fly the highest and endure the greatest of all birds. The publishing company Sanzini is founded upon the vision of sustaining and thriving in the poor publishing environment of Korea, like a sanzini. Since its founding in 2005, Sanzini has published over 500 covers on diverse areas including humanities, social studies, political subjects, and literature. In 2009, the company expanded under the new name of Sanzini Publishing Group, and launched an imprint, ‘Happy Book Media’, which has been publishing books on regions, arts, and culture, with a main focus on the arts and culture series. In 2015, the company received the Grand Prize in the business management and sales category at the Korean Publishing Science Society Awards, and in the same year, the company published Happy Local Publishing, which was Korea’s first and only book about the survival for local publishing companies, written and compiled by the entire Sanzini employees in commemoration of the company’s 10th anniversary.
Sanzini is a publishing company based in Busan. In Korea, most publishing companies and publishing activities are based in Seoul and Paju. But Sanzini is committed to the development of cultural democracy by reproducing unique local cultures into the book contents. Busan is the second largest city in Korea, blessed with rich natural environments of oceans, rivers, and mountains, and it has been a major backdrop in the modern history of Korea. Recently, the city has been growing as a city of movies as the host of the Busan International Film Festival as well. You can be rest assured that Sanzini will continue to provide our readers with publishing contents that distinguish themselves with the environment, history, and culture of Busan.
