Cypress Books

Largest distributor for Chinese publications in the UK

Cypress Books is a UK based publisher and distributor established in 1984. As the UK's first and largest distributor of books, periodicals and cultural products from China, Cypress Books has been the main source for publications in many different fields such as Chinese language, literature, history, art and traditional medicine, designed for people willing to learn more about one of the world's oldest civilisations. Today, the company continues to grow up and adapt to a new generation of readers and specialists.

Specialist source for Chinese language learning and teaching materials

Cypress Books boasts an increasing list of publications for learning Chinese, such as Chinese GCSE, Chinese in Steps, Confidence Chinese and the Chinese Examination Study Guide Series, which are specially designed for the UK market. In 2009, we established Sinolingua-London as a joint venture with the Chinese publisher Sinolingua, which will expand our publishing line on language textbooks and multimedia materials for learning Chinese.

Support Chinese conferences and events with exhibitions and sponsorships

Cypress Books places great importance on working with bookshops, schools and educational institutions. We have held successful exhibitions and sponsored many events to assist the promotion of Chinese culture and Chinese language learning. We are committed to improving the quality and the range of materials available for learners in the UK.
