History of Spectrum Books

Spectrum Books embarked on its publishing journey with the release of the “Multiplication Table for Nursery,” authored by Chief Joop Berkhout. At that time, the company held the belief that beyond serving schoolbook users, there existed an underserved audience—those seeking general knowledge and leisure reading. Taking a bold step, Spectrum Books ventured into publishing biographies, autobiographies, and special interest publications. This strategic move allowed the company to carve out a distinctive niche for itself.

The visionary Chief Olu Akinkugbe, an esteemed industrialist and book enthusiast, conceptualized the idea of establishing a publishing company. Under the capable management of Joop Berkhout, Spectrum Books Limited was born. Its initial focus primarily involved importing and selling tertiary-level books from the United Kingdom. Over time, the company forged partnerships with UK publishers, solidifying its presence in the educational landscape.

As Spectrum Books expanded, it diversified its offerings to cover educational titles spanning from nursery to senior secondary levels. The catalog extended to include medical and law-related subjects. Additionally, the company has embraced digital transformation by converting educational and special interest titles into an e-platform. With a dedicated team of over 95 staff members, a portfolio of 1000 titles, and collaborations with approximately 500 authors, Spectrum Books has continued to shape the literary landscape.
