Pax Forlag is a Norwegian publishing house, established in 1964.[1]

The first manager was Tor Bjerkmann, who chaired the company from 1964 to 1972.[2]

Starting with Bjerkmann's new translation of George Orwell's Animal Farm, Pax published 150 quality paperback editions during its first three years of operation.[3]

Pax Forlag has issued a selected reprint of the "working class" encyclopaedia Arbeidernes Leksikon in 1974, and the political encyclopaedia Pax Leksikon (1978-1981).
