How do you choose your books?

Parapara Books want to print loved classics, unloved classics, and unrecognised literature.  Eventually at Parapara we would like to print new writing, especially literature from countries and cultures which are not so common on western and global northern bookshelves.  The sharing of languages and cultures is an important part of Parapara Books' creative mission.


How long will it take my books to arrive?

To Germany 2 - 4 days, to Europe 3 - 5 days, and internationally 5 - 10 days.


Do you sell book tokens?

 Not as yet.


The translation isn't accurate, there are some words which are old fashioned, can you change them?

As is written in the first pages of every book: many of these stories and translations were written in the 19th century, be aware of the rich differences in language and the appearance of words which may not be in common use today.

Try to see differences as historical quirks and enjoy them!
