About Us

“When you sell a man a book you don’t sell him just 12 ounces of paper and ink and glue – you sell him a whole new life.” ~Christopher Morley

Late Shri D.D. Mehra

Our story

We’re a boutique publishing house with the expertise leadership of publishing veterans, Mr. C.K. Mehra and Mr. S.K. Mehra, sons of Late Shri D. Mehra (founder of Rupa & Co.), along with a set of young individuals on the team, who are extremely passionate about books. Backed by the impeccable lineage of Mehra’s, Alchemy Publishers is being positioned as a quality imprint and has already stormed the Indian publishing industry with intelligent, relevant, meaningful and influential books that span the entire gamut of reader interest — self-help, philosophy, religion, wildlife, fiction, women’s studies, travel and coffee-table books.

Our mission

Continuing the trend of publishing books on meaningful subjects, Alchemy looks forward to becoming the leading light in this space. We value content above all else, and believe in providing the right guidance and platform to all our authors, established or new. Our authors are part of our team as we work transparently with constructive feedback and an involved approach on the editing, design, production and marketing front. We select only a limited number out of the numerous entries received everyday, and dedicate ample time to each book to assure substance.
