An Introduction to Ever Glory Publishing Co., Ltd.
Founded in June, 1991, Ever Glory Publishing Co., Ltd. has mainly had educational- and entertainment-oriented children’s books published and distributed. It once gained authorizations from Shogakukan, Kodansha, Shueisha, and Akita Shoten to issue two serial volumes, “Champion Teen” and “Happy Girl”, and more than 1500 comic pamphlets in Chinese versions in Taiwan. Ever Glory Publishing Co., Ltd. also strived to have well-known American comics, “X-Men” and “Batman,” released in Taiwan. Moreover, local cartoonists cultivated by the company are widely recognized nowadays and bring the eyes of the world to the international comics market. Ever Glory Publishing Co., Ltd. recruits nationwide remarkable children’s literature writers to create local children’s literature, adapt stories from foreign fairy tales, biographies of great men, fables, and Chinese and Western literature masterpieces and to publish authorized natural science books from Japanese Shogakukan and Gakken Publishing. For 29 years, Ever Glory Publishing Co., Ltd. has embraced a concept of extensive reading to introduce a broad variety of books in expectation of enabling people to read extensively. This way, we can take a different stance and introspect, and shed new light on social diversity in hope of instilling new insightful perspectives to Taiwan and spawning opportunities to stimulate Taiwanese soft power.
Grasping every second to steer into the future, all of the publishing company members with high spirits actively explore the possibility of cooperation with overseas companies and continue to introduce best-selling manga from a so-called manga kingdom, Japan, for the purpose of broadening domestic students’ horizons on extensive reading and shaping sound personalities. In expanding domestic comic markets, we employ a “long-tail strategy”, and create a better nurturing environment wholeheartedly in hopes of putting local cartoonists on the comics map as an ultimate goal. Meanwhile, we have teamed up with our parent company, Nan-I Publishing House Co., Ltd. to diversify all teaching and learning materials inside and outside the classroom. Instead of stagnating our national education and culture, we stride over and dream big to inspire the public and Taiwan’s society towards a country of cultural diversity, sound spirit, and positive thinking.
