About Rockbook

Since its foundation in 2001, ROCKBOOK has been providing sales and marketing representation and consultancy services to global trade and academic book publishers.  Based in Japan and in France, our expertise is on Japan, South Korea, other parts of Asia, and Europe.

With our wealth of knowledge and connections in the international publishing industry, Rockbook aims to raise our client publishers’ market share and their presence in the global marketplace.

Believing in the power of books and stories, Rockbook launched its own publishing activities in 2022. Though books, we bring the Japanese wonders and excellencies to the world.  Starting in 2023, Rockbook became one of Columbia University Press client presses. Through their global network, our books will be made available to the readers worldwide.
