This is us Books is a young publishing house, founded in 2019 by Hilde Atalanta. It’s focused on inclusivity and diversity, dedicated to giving voice to individuals who aren’t usually represented.
Seeing oneself represented (in popular media) can give an individual the reassurance that they are normal, that they belong, that they are part of our society. This is us Books aims to build a series of books showing a wide diversity of human beings, with different kinds of backgrounds, sexualities, gender identities and body shapes. An honest representation of our society, but with the emphasis on individuals that aren’t often portrayed. We’re aiming to make a series of books in which people recognise themselves. We want people to feel welcome and included.
The future is inclusive!
