About Prospect Press books

A book imprint specialising in publishing natural history, art, culture, current affairs, biography, memoir, and company history titles of Caribbean interest

Prospect Press Books, Trinidad and Tobago, CaribbeanEstablished in 1994, Prospect Press is MEP’s book publishing imprint. Since inception, we have published general interest titles on Caribbean subjects, in areas such as biography, natural history, art, and current affairs. A cover gallery and links to individual titles are included below.

Given the constrains of commercial book publishing and distribution locally and regionally, we unfortunately now can only serve as publisher for book projects that are sponsored or self-financing (which for some authors has successfully included crowdfunding and/or sponsorship by corporate/nonprofit entities).

To prepare a quotation for our publishing services, we would need to have sight of the material and information about:

  • funding
  • number of copies and pages
  • format (black and white or full colour; hard or soft cover; dimensions; and whether the title will be hard copy, digital, or both)
  • photography or illustrations, if any.

For more, please contact us to see how we can help you.
