Our aim to to make available on the digital platform, books that are quite hard or rarely found in physical book format in the western world, such as historical books written by renowned scholars, originally published in the Middle East.

We are particularly interested in publishing authors who are based in these regions. Our aim is to promote the people of the regions, being a true authentic source of the regions' culture and literature.
