About us


Thank you for visiting Memo. We’re glad you’re here.

Memo forlag is an independent, Norwegian publishing house, established in 2016. Memo is a small, but vital and successful company. Our list is built on high editorial standards, design and individual care. We love what we do and we only publish what we love, so you can always expect more from Memo books. We know it’s subjective, but we want to be really proud of everything we publish. We want our books to make readers happy, to convey pleasure.

We recognise that it’s a privilege to be entrusted with other people’s creative work – authors, illustrators, photographers and other creative people. We aim to be nurturing, responsive and fair, and we want everyone to enjoy working with us.

Here’s how we work: We specialise in general non-fiction and illustrated books for children and adults. Having said this – we love surprises: so we could be looking for just about anything with potential. We go out of our way to find great illustration, great design and great writing. Thanks to the fact that we don’t belong to any of the big groups, we can go our own way. We don’t have a corporate machine we need to feed, and we make all our own decisions. This makes us devoted to our work and personally committed. We work efficiently and flexibly and can rapidly publish books about popular topics and current trends.

We are happy being small (for now: we hope to grow). All in all, we are very happy. We do believe that being happy and having fun is the most important thing and will make everything that we do better.
