Looking to the future with history
With its foundation in 1585, Leykam Buchverlag is the oldest publishing house in Austria. Leykam Buchverlag has set itself the goal of publishing books that not only inspire readers, but also provide them with new ideas and answers to the pressing questions of our time.
The repertoire of Leykam Buchverlag includes literature and children's books, non-fiction as well as science and educational titles.
Our literary program includes debuts by talented young authors as well as works by renowned authors of contemporary German literature. Our book projects range from poetry and short story collections to novels.
With our children's books, we want to offer children an exciting reading adventure, awaken their curiosity about the environment and nature, and teach them how enriching cultural diversity is and how important tolerance is for a harmonious coexistence.
Our non-fiction books deal with current topics, which are presented by selected experts in an accessible and qualitative manner. The focus is on society and politics, the environment, health and contemporary history.
Science is a central component of Leykam Verlag, which has maintained close cooperation with scientific and educational institutions in Austria since its founding. Particularly worthy of mentioning is the close relationship with the University of Graz and, in particular, the excellent cooperation with the publishing house Graz University Press.
