India Book House

India Book House Pvt. Limited is an importer, distributor and publisher of books and magazines in India. Formed in 1952, India Book House published paperback editions of children's authors such as Enid Blyton and Frederick Forsyth, as well as magazines such as "Tintin" and "Asterix", often in Indian languages as well. Their most famous series of books is the "Amar Chitra Katha" comics line, that portrayed cartoon depictions of Hindu tradition and folklore. This series, now nearly defunct, influenced the childhoods of those who grew up in the 1970s and 1980s in India. An attempt was made to revive it in the late 1990s, with only moderate success.Today, IBH is one of the leading publishers of illustrated volumes on Indian history and heritage, specializing in architecture, fine art, decorative art, film, environment, and lifestyle.

India Book House is headquartered in Mumbai. It has now been merged with the Oxford Bookstore and Stationery Company to become Oxford and IBH and is one of the largest book wholesalers in India.
