A note from the publisher
Dito po sa amin.
Over here, where we are, is a warm and welcoming place—Tahanan Books—where the love of reading begins.
Behind every book is a wealth of stories. The books we’ve published over the years—over 150 titles—were born out of creative collaborations with talented authors and artists. And you, our readers, are very much a part of our story!
Looking ahead, my small, dedicated staff and I remain passionately committed to creating world-class publications that shine a lantern on Philippine culture and heritage.
Years ago, a gentleman in his late 50s walked up to me and said, simply, “My children grew up with Tahanan Books.” His words made all of those decades worthwhile.
From our Tahanan to yours,
Publisher & Editor-In-Chief
