Publisher Information

Y Lolfa


Y Lolfa was born in the mid-sixties in a large, draughty warehouse in the middle of Wales. It was an exciting period of fun and protest. The company acted as unofficial printers to the new, activist Welsh Language Society, while also producing its own irreverent brand of popular and political material. The word Y Lolfa comes from the word Lol, the title of the magazine it had launched in 1966. Lol means 'nonsense' or 'fun' while -fa means 'place'. The word also means 'The Lounge', reflecting the relaxed nature of its early publications. Gradually the company evolved, and in 1977 ironically took over the Courtroom and Police Station in Talybont. As well as publishing a wide range of books in Welsh, it started producing English-language books on subjects of Welsh interest, including best-selling titles like Welsh is Fun, and Gwynfor Evans' masterly Land of My Fathers.
