This measure was reported by civil society.
Describe the main features of the measure/initiative: 
On April 8, 2014 we were born as an independent publishing house in the city of Manizales. We are committed to the region and local talent, and we bring together illustrators, designers, photographers, proofreaders and writers to create books full of details that stimulate the imagination and transcend borders. We work to rescue, on each page of words and colors, the themes and traditions of our regional culture, and bring the stories and imagery of its inhabitants to national and international markets. As a priority we think of children and how incentivize creativity in first years of life. We are a publishing house that is commitred to children's books because it recognizes tomorrow's readers in the smallest ones today.
