The first titles published were in the area of educational books and were written by Stefanos Patakis, the company's founder. We currently publish a wide range of books in all fields, with key areas of our publishing activity being in education, books for children and young adults, literature -both translated and original Greek fiction-, general non-fiction, humanities, sciences, as well as dictionaries and general reference.
