Publib Corporate Profile

Publib is a book publisher founded by Yoshiro Hamazaki, a subculture and liberal arts editor also known in the Japanese publishing industry as Hamazakikaku.

Publib’s first book was Death Metal Africa, which attracted significant media attention in Japan with its unique angle focusing on the metal music scene in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The second book, Sovietechno (Kyosan Techno in Japanese), introduced a wide catalog of electronic music from the Soviet Union.

The company name Publib is a representation of many concepts beginning with “pub-” and “lib-,” including publishing, public, pub, liberty, liberation, liberal, libertarianism, liberal ats and library.

While Publib’s primary goal is to pursue unique content that has never been published before, the company also aims to acquire copyrights of unique books from around the world to publish their Japanese translations. Publib also seeks opportunities to export Japan’s never-seen-before books to overseas for translation.
