People who aren't book people often don't think of books in terms of publishers or imprints, but book people often do. Book people are often proud to say what publishers they read.
As a book person, I love it when I come across a good publisher or imprint, especially if they are doing something interesting or different.
Zubaan Books publishes for and about Indian women. They have a wide range, from academic topics to stuff for young women. And, lucky for me, most of them are in English. (I, unfortunately, cannot read Hindi or Arabic or any of the 200 other languages that the nation claims.) The publishers are proudly feminist too, which is the best news of all.
