As a division of a trade publishing house, our in-house team is uniquely positioned to be able to extend to you over 200 collective years of industry expertise.

Jacana began as a custom publishing company 24 years ago and has been making bespoke books ever since. We have established links to the best professionals and continue to offer top quality services. We have a long history of involvement in the publication of a variety of specialised materials (not only books, but also posters, workbooks and pamphlets) in various fields.

Our ‘one-stop-shop’ is a full-service turnkey project management solution on all publications, from conceptualisation, through the production process and print management, to a final delivered product. We will assist in the development of publications, with an emphasis on editorial integrity, visual literacy, design and layout. While we are not a printer, our links with preferred print partners in South Africa will ensure that you get the best possible print price and print management.

We are able to take a world of complex information and ‘translate’ it into a suitable format for your target audience. The design and content of our materials ensure accessibility through user-friendly language and layout. 

Our service offering includes:

  • Project management
  • Conceptualisation: sequencing and organising of information
  • Writing
  • Plain language editing and copy-editing of text
  • Design & layout
  • Representation of concepts through graphic design (graphs, diagrams, and infographics), illustration &/or photography
