Top 10 Book Publishers in Dhaka

Today we have a very interesting blog for you because we are going international for today’s list as we continue this very popular series of top 10 book publishers.

This is because we are going to talk about the top 10 book publishers in Dhaka which is the capital city of Bangladesh.

We have decided to choose this fantastic city for this edition of the blog series simply because we cannot ignore Dhaka if you talk about book publishing and literature.

This city has one of the highest numbers of readers and critical thinkers as well as book lovers from small children to people who might themselves be grandparents.

That is why it is only fair to bring this popular blog series to such a city and such a literature-loving and culturally rich country.

There is also another important reason why we are doing this blog about another city that is not even in India as an Indian publisher.

It is because of the love and support we get from our readers in Bangladesh as Orange Publishers. We are really honoured by the level of readership numbers we get from this fantastic city.

Book Publishing

And that is why this blog is our tribute to such a literature-loving population, our lovely Bangladeshi readers.

So, without any delay, let us look at the top 10 book publishers in Dhaka that have some of the biggest readership numbers and popularity.

They cover the Bangladeshi Freedom Movement with a good number of publications and they also have books related to recent social incidents such as the pandemic.

They publish books both in English as well as Bengali and they mostly publish religious books.

That is why if you have this specific need then you can definitely check them out because they have a good reader base in Dhaka.

However, if you are looking for a publisher that publishes everything then this publisher is probably not the best choice for you.

You can still contact them and enquire about your publishing needs.

Nymphea Publication

If you follow closely then you might notice a common theme which is that the publishing industry in Dhaka is quite mature.

This is because most of the names in the list are at least 20 years old and that is also the case with this book publisher because Nymphee Publication is 25 years old at this point.

They are quite a versatile publisher but they follow a common theme throughout everything they publish and that is to tell the story of Bangladesh.

This means if you have a publishing need and your book focuses on history and culture then this publisher is going to be a good choice for you.

So, grab yourself a nice coffee and just sit down and relax and enjoy these facts about books.

Top 20 Fun Facts About Books

The True International Bestseller

We all want to create a bestseller as authors and sometimes it might be very difficult.

Bestsellers usually occupy popularity and a location in a list if that book has been sold the most in a particular location for a few continuous weeks.

But how about a book that has remained the bestseller for nearly 2000 years and we are not even talking about a particular region or country?

The true international bestseller is the Bible. It is the book with the most printed copies in the world along with a bunch of other world records.

This is because there are an estimated more than 5 billion printed copies of the Bible around the world.

The Smell of Old Books

If you are a book lover like us then you probably love the smell of old books. You know exactly what we are talking about.

It is that awesome smell of old paper along with a combination of book glue and even the ink and this kind of a smell can mostly be found in old books and in old libraries.

There is actually a name for this, it is called bibliosmia. It is this sensation of enjoying the smell of old books.

Teeny Ted – The Tiniest Book

When you think of the smallest book in the world, you might imagine that book must be at least a few inches in height.

However, that is far from the truth with the world’s smallest book verified by the Guinness Book of World Records.

Teeny Ted from Turnip Town is the smallest book in the world and it can’t even be measured in inches because it measures 100×70 micrometres.

If you want to look at it then you might need a magnifying glass but if you want to read it then you might need a microscope.

Abiblophobia Is Real

We promise we are only going to talk about fun facts but this is a fact that is not fun for the people who experienced it and this is something quite truly real.

We are talking about the fear of an empty bookshelf. Yes, this is an actual fear and it has an actual term and it means people who truly love books might develop this fear of their bookshelves being empty.

This leads them to keep on buying books even before they finish their existing collection because their greatest fear is that they might finish reading all the books they have and might not have anything more to read.

Luckily there are libraries as well as bookstores that help them.

Macabre Books

If we talk about disturbing books then the list can become quite huge because there are disturbing books that talk about disturbing history and then there are books that talk about disturbing occurrences in psychology.

However, those are the subject matter of that book and it will probably not disturb anyone when those books are closed.

But think of a book that is so disturbing that people do not like to look at it or find it very fascinating to look at.

That most disturbing kind of book definitely has to be made of something disturbing. That is why when we talk about macabre books, we are talking about books that are made from human skin.

Yes, these kinds of books are actually real and you can even check them out at Harvard University library.  Now it’s beyond our thinking why would someone make a book like that but they exist.

The Largest Book Collection

When you talk about the largest book collection, we do not obviously mean libraries because public libraries out there contain millions of volumes.

That is why when we talk about the largest book collection in the world, we mean the largest privately owned book collection that is in public knowledge.

That has to be John Q. Benham’s book collection. It is estimated that he has at least 1.5 million volumes large.

While it is impossible to know the actual number but the key thing to understand about him is that he has been collecting and expanding his collection for over 50 years and it houses a very diverse collection of rare books.

20 Days of Effort

Let’s now look at a fact that our authors and writers would love and this is something that we have actually dug up from our own calculations.

It takes an author roughly 3 weeks or 20 days of dedicated writing to complete a novel on average.  However, saying that would be wrong because nobody writes 24 hours a day.

So let us break it down into hours because it takes nearly 500 hours to complete a novel. This means a few hours every day for a few months.

And we are not even including things like research as well as the time it takes to edit the manuscript.

First Novel on A Typewriter

Mark Twain was the first novelist to use a typewriter actively for his novels. This was a relatively new technology and authors did not want to get into it.

After he started using it and published his novel Adventure of Tom Sawyer in 1876 solely written on a typewriter, it gave hope and assurance to other authors to also do the same and adopt the tech.

Fast forward to today when most authors type on a keyboard, a derivative of the typewriter.

Codex Leicester

Books have come down in price by a lot and there are even options to get books for virtually nothing with different subscription models if you like eBooks.

But would you like to know which is the most expensive book in the world? You definitely cannot buy it in any bookstore.

Well, this book cost Bill Gates $30.8 million which he actually paid for at an auction. We are talking about the Codex Leicester by Leonardo Da Vinci.

It is probably one of the most important books to exist in history.

Harry Potter Books Banned

Are you a Potterhead? We sure are and that is why this is a very fun fact that you should know and perhaps be glad you are not from the US.

If you think about the books banned in the US then you might think of some books that have to do with USSR or China.

You are going to be surprised to find out that Harry Potter books fall into the category of most banned books in the US.

This is because America is actually quite religious and since the Harry Potter Series books contain things like witchcraft it’s banned a lot in several districts and places that are religious.

Over A Million

While it is impossible to put an exact number to it, over a million books are published each year on planet Earth.

China leads in the game when it comes to publishing as it publishes nearly 40% of all books in the world followed by the US and then the UK.

Now that is quite a number that we would like to match and change and bring India to the forefront of the greatest number of books published one book at a time.

Only Two Fingers

If you remember the fact about the time it takes to write a novel then you are going to appreciate this fact even more.

You have probably heard about Lord of The Rings or The Hobbit but would you believe it if we told you that it was only written with two fingers?

Yes, that’s right because J.R.R. Tolkien used to type with two fingers and he had written the entire Lord of The Rings Trilogy of 1200 pages using just two fingers.

Beyond The Printed Text

You probably know that books come in all shapes and sizes and all kinds of formats and you are probably familiar with audiobooks as well as eBooks.

But there are also special kinds of books that do not use ink. Yes, these books are printed but there is no ink in the book.

We are of course talking about Braille books for visually impaired readers. Every popular novel out there and every important book has its brail version for visually impaired readers and it is more common than you think.

A Lot of Translations

You might have heard of the Iliad and Odyssey and thought to yourself how many times has it been translated and for which languages?

So, you might also ask, which book holds the record for having the greatest number of translations?  Translations into over 3000 languages to be exact.

The Bible holds that record too because it is the book that has been the most translated book in the world for a while now and has been translated into over 3000 languages.

The Largest Book

The largest book in the world measures approximately 5 by 7 feet in size when it is closed and it weighs nearly 60 kilograms in weight.

We are of course talking about “Bhutan: A Visual Odyssey Across the Last Himalayan Kingdom” by Michael Hawley.

It is a fascinating picture book.

The Shortest Novel

Some people think that the shortest novel in the world is “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” by Ernest Hemingway.

However, It is a flash fiction experiment that shows the power of storytelling but it was never meant to be a novel.

The shortest novel in the world is actually “Mickey Mouse and the Medicine Man” by Walt Disney. It is just one sentence long.

While we do not encourage the piracy of novels but we can surely tell you the entire novel here. It goes like this, “Suddenly Mickey realized the peril of Goofy’s position.” And that’s the entire novel.

The Youngest Author

The thing about publishing is that it is never too early or it is never too late to write a book and this is probably what Dorothy Straight had in mind when she wrote her book “How the World Began”.

Would you like to guess how old she was when she wrote her book?

She was just 4 years old and it is a record that has still not been broken by anyone.

She did not write it to have it published because she probably did not know what publishing meant at 4. She wrote it for her grandmother.

Oldest Surviving Printed Book

The Diamond Sutra or the Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita Sutra is the oldest surviving printed book in the world.

It is estimated to have been printed all the way back in 868 AD which makes it more than a thousand years old.

It was found in China in the early 1900s and it contains a valuable collection of manuscripts that are very important to Mahayana Buddhism.

The Top Three Ever

If you want to know the top 3 most read books in the world then you might not be surprised with the first one which is definitely the Bible.

The second name in the list might also not be surprising because it is Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung and it is a compulsory book in China.

However, the third name on the list might surprise you because it is Harry Potter books because they are among the most read books in the world.

Books And Mental Health

Multiple studies have proven and concluded the fact that books can actually be excellent for your mental health.

Studies have even suggested that reading books can even prevent Alzheimer’s and even Dementia and that is why if you are a reader all your life then there is a lesser likelihood that you will ever get Alzheimer’s.

So, keep reading!

We hope this was fun for you to read as much as it was fun for us to write and we would love to bring you fun blogs like this about books because we all love books.

And if you are planning on publishing a book just on a topic like this on fun facts or anything and you want a reliable publishing company that can publish for you then you can count on us.

Check Out This Picture Story Telling Guide – Create Your Picture Book Today

Pictures can tell a thousand stories and pictures can be a very powerful medium to express your story and that is why we bring you this important picture storytelling guide.

This guide will help you understand how to utilise pictures effectively in children’s books so that you can convey your powerful message to one of the most difficult audiences out there, i.e., children.

We have decided to keep children’s picture books at the front and centre of this blog simply because it involves a lot more complexity compared to any other kind of picture book guide.

This is because there can be different kinds of picture book genres out there and these kinds of books can be about very critical topics like conflict, art, economy etc.

However, they are a different kind of illustrated storytelling simply because you are dealing with a mature audience and you can even get away with a lot of text.

The primary focus when it comes to children’s storybooks is pictures which means if you include text and other details in those stories then your highly critical audience(children) will simply lose their interest.

That is why we are only going to talk about picture books for children in this blog because that is even more difficult in a sense than any other kind of storytelling with images.

Before we go into the steps or tips of how to create such a book, we need to understand what is picture storytelling.

What Is Picture Story Telling?

Picture storytelling is simply the art of telling a story through pictures or illustrations and it is the art of understanding what kind of pictures to use at which points.

If you are planning on creating a picture book for adults on serious topics then you will not really need to think about emotions or actions or even things like lessons or morals.

But when you are creating the picture storybook for kids, you need to think of the plot as well as the position of the pictures from their perspective to understand how it will bring out their emotions.

This is not only critical but if you need the best kind of accuracy with your results then you might also want to consult a child psychologist when you are creating your picture storybook.

The subject of picture storytelling and the techniques for photographic storytelling might be different based on the type of book whether it is for children or for adults but the concept is the same in essence.

It is basically utilising pictures instead of text to showcase your ideas.

So, What Are the Types of Children’s Picture Books

There are a lot of types when it comes to children’s picture books, here are a few common types.

Folk Tales And Parables

This is probably the most traditional kind of picture book for children and they contain different fantasy characters along with amazing illustrations.

They are loved by children throughout the world and some are primarily pictures with very little text and others are pictures and text put in equally.

These picture books rely heavily on hand-drawn illustrations and showcase different stories with kings and queens and animals.

Only Pictures

These kinds of picture books are mostly for very small children and these books do not contain any kind of text because that does not make sense.

Sometimes these books will contain the usual ABCD and are called concept books and that is why if you want to create something like this then you need the best image storytelling tips because you do not have the advantage of text.

Interactive Picture Books

Interactive picture books are one of the most popular kinds of picture books for children because they contain different moving bits and pieces and pop-up elements.

If you have never tried out this kind of a book then the closest thing would be interactive greeting cards that contain sceneries that pop up.

The process of creating these books is unique.

Biography Books

Biography books are for parents who want to teach their children about different historical figures and these books follow a different kind of design logic.

The thing is, you need the very best illustrators for creating a picture book like this because you need to have a very accurate representation of the historical person in the pictures.

While illustrations are the most popular format for biography books but you can also use photographs and then you do not have to search for a very good illustrator.

It is best that you look at storytelling photography examples to get a better idea of how to use photography for biography books.

Animal Story Books

Animal storybooks are also quite popular among children and they only contain pictures of animals and might contain stories of animals.

These kinds of books are not only interesting but they are also very educational as they teach about different animals to small children and can even contain moral lessons.

These kinds of books usually contain illustrations but you can also create a book like this with photography and that is why you need very clear storytelling photography ideas in order to accomplish this task.

Art and Sketch Books

This is one of the most popular kinds of picture books and they usually do not contain stories but sometimes they do have stories along with pictures and empty sketches next to them.

Children are usually instructed to complete the sketch and fill up the colours and then move on to the next page and read the story and then colour the black and white sketch.

This Is How You Create a Picture Storybook

Select The Design

The first step in the process of how to tell a story with photography or illustrations is to look for a professional book layout designer. This is the best option if you are not confident enough.

However, if you are confident enough and you want to take care of the design yourself then the first thing to do would be to select the type of book you want to write.

And if you are sure about that then you can think about selecting the design because there are different kinds of designs based on the type of picture book you want to write.

You can choose an animal picture book or you can choose a traditional picture book with illustrations and stories. Or you can choose a picture book that helps children learn to read numbers.

There are templates specifically out for each of these kinds of picture books and if you are not sure about the layout then there is a simple thing you can do.

You can try downloading different templates that already have the layout and will act as a guideline for your picture book.

You can also get good templates from template. net and if you want to use that template directly from an app then Microsoft Word also has some good templates regarding picture books.

Select The Type of Pictures

Now that you have selected the design, we expect that you also have the story in mind along with an outline of the story.

The only important thing now is to choose a style of illustration and choose the type of pictures or illustrations you want to include in the book.

You can choose to have pictures in the form of digital art or pictures in the form of AI-generated art because that is something gaining momentum.

Or you can go the traditional way by including line drawings and old-fashioned illustrations that are usually done in watercolour and are quite appealing to children.

We would suggest you to stick with watercolour and keep it classic because it does not really make sense to include realistic pictures taken from a professional camera or AI art.

Select The Specifics

Now that you have selected the type of picture book as well as the type of pictures and the templates, there is still something important you need to do before you get down to the illustrations.

We are talking about the specifics which means you need to create an outline for the length of the text.

  • When we talk about a picture book the length should not be more than 300 words because your audience simply does not have the patience to read or maybe they can’t read because they are too little.
  • And along with that you also need to set the page count because picture books are usually 32 pages but then again you can reduce the number of pages if you are writing for very small children.
  • After that, we come to the trim size. The accepted trims in the industry are-
  • 8 x 8 square
  • 8 x 10
  • 5 x 5 to 10 x 10

Apart from that, if you decide to create a children’s book then you must forget paperbacks exist and always choose hardcover because your audience is not the most careful bunch when it comes to taking care of delicate paperbacks.

Tips For Creating a Picture Book

Focus On Pictures

Sometimes picture book authors make the mistake of focusing on the book cover design as well as other aspects but the primary focus should be on the content which is the pictures.

You must always look at the pictures from the point of view of your little audience and think about how they are going to react to the pictures.

It is even better if you have a child at home so that you can essentially ask your child to peer review the work before you publish it.

Try Avoiding Photographs

The second thing you must keep in mind is that it is not really wise to use photographs for children’s books because children do not like realistic photographs.

Children are into cartoonistic illustrations that highlight things like colours and expressions and other important details.

If you plan on using photographs then you must choreograph those photographs in a certain way that is attractive and applicable for a child audience with a lot of colours and a lot of fun.

Try Including Lessons and Morals

Publishing a children’s book is a much bigger achievement than publishing any other kind of book and it is because you are not only publishing something fun but you are shaping society.

That is why, if you are planning on writing children’s books, always try to include important lessons of honesty and kindness and important morals in the stories so that these stories can shape their minds in a good way.

We hope this blog will help you create the perfect picture book for your tiny human audiences so that they can not only enjoy the book but also learn something important.

Common Picture Book FAQs

How do you make a picture tell a story?

If you want to make a picture tell a story in the context of a picture book then you need to understand the audience in the first place.

This is because if your audience are children then you need to think of it from their perspective and that picture should be full of vibrancy and colour and easy enough for them to understand.

If you want to create a picture book for adults then you need to utilise a picture that goes with the theme of the book.

We would love to create a whole new blog for you just so we can discuss this topic and we would love to hear about it in the comments whether you would like such a blog.

The thing is quite self-explanatory because storytelling pictures is just utilising pictures to tell a certain story and these pictures can be in progression.

You can think of it like comic books because if you pick up any comic book then you are going to see the pictures progress one scene after another.

That is how you do storytelling with pictures.

Things can become a little bit more complicated if you are doing storytelling for children because then you need to think about it from the perspective of children to do good storytelling.

How do you write a children’s book picture book?

When it comes to children’s books, you need to keep in mind what kind of children because there are children below the age of 6 and then they are children below the age of 10 and 12-year-olds are also considered as children.

That is why it is very important to understand your audience and that audience will help you determine the kind of book you want to write.

The smaller the child, the less the text because smaller children will simply lose interest in text. You must also keep this in mind when it comes to character building because smaller children do not have the capacity to understand complex characters. However, you can make those characters more dynamic for an older child.

You must also make sure to use a lot of pictures and only get the best illustrators.

How do I get my children’s book illustrated?

The best thing to do would be to illustrate yourself but if you do not know how to draw then you should not attempt it alone because it will take up a lot of time and the outcome might be unprofessional.

Instead, you should look for illustrators on freelancing websites as you can get a good deal when it comes to these websites.

You can hire these professionals and pay them by the project or by the hour and you can even keep an eye on their progress.

The other thing would be to look for them offline but it is going to be much more expensive and it will be difficult to find an illustrator like that.

How many pages is a kid’s picture book?

The thing about this is that there are no rules to it because you can have as many pages as you want but the industry standard is 32 pages.

When we say 32 pages, we mean everything from the cover pages to the extra pages and introductions and everything else.

However, you can make it smaller than that but we would not suggest you to make a book bigger than 32 pages for children.

You must also make sure that the book is bound in hardcover because that is usually the norm in the industry.
