Book Formats for All Readers


Partridge Africa provides the tools to help authors share their work through as many channels and formats available so that they can reach readers wherever, whenever.


Partridge Africa recognises that Africa has a rich oral tradition with its wealth of stories that have been handed down through generations. Along with modern classics, these stories should be recorded, preserved, and published for posterity.


Electronic books are a symbol of today’s innovations. Artists, including authors, strive to produce valuable work that they hope will transcend time. However, many realise that they need to keep up with today’s fast-changing world.
