We started Imagin8 Press in 2016, when we realized that there were almost no books available for English speakers learning to read Chinese, except for books written for children and young adults. We decided to write a book that would be interesting to readers of ALL ages including adults, and that would have built-in tools to make learning easier (like pinyin on facing pages, English version in the back, audiobooks on YouTube, and so on). The result of that, Rise of the Monkey King, became a best seller in the Chinese language learning community. After that, one book led to another, and we now have quite a few titles in our library, all available on Amazon and also available in quantity directly from us. Some of our titles follow the original format of the Journey to the West series, but we’ve also branched out into translations of other classic Chinese books such as Dao De Jing, The Art of War, and San Zi Jing.

If you’re interested in buying our books in bulk ($100 or more total list price), please click the Buy Our Books link. You can also use the Contact Us form to learn about our discounted pricing for larger orders.

Also, we usually have some extra books in stock (author's copies, earlier releases of books, etc.) and we offer deep discounts on them. Contact us and let us know what you're looking for.

We hope you enjoy our books, and would always like to hear from you!
