Introducing Our New Identity: Farshore

One year on from our transition into the HarperCollins family, we are delighted to reveal our new company name and identity:

Farshore – opening up a world of endless possibilities and fearless adventurers.


With our new name and brand identity, we remain firmly committed to our mission and purpose — to make every child a proud reader.

We wanted to unveil our new identity in the best way we know how . . . with a giant celebration of the power and magic of reading!

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in Paper Beach, our community art project. We were overwhelmed by the response! It was a joy to look through the drawings, poems and stories that came in from all around the globe answering the question ‘where does reading take you?’

Every entry will be included in the giant art piece created by East Cliff Creatives which is being unveiled today. What’s more, your entry could be laid side-by-side with entries from some very familiar characters as we received some very special entries from Winnie-the-Pooh, Thomas the Tank Engine, the Mr Men and Little Miss and Minecraft.
