About the Georgian Alphabet


Apart from the distinguished qualities that Georgian alphabet possesses such as being among the 14 existing scripts in the world and the widely recognized beauty of the characters, it is one of the major marks of identity for Georgians. The concept is titled as “Georgia made by Characters”. Each character of the Georgian alphabet carries valuable information about eminent figures or important events of different periods of the Georgian history.

The cultural heritage of Georgia will be presented through the works of 40 Georgian publishing houses. One of the houses is going to be Palitra L. Palitra L Publishing will introduce three Georgian authors to more than 400 000 guests of the fair. One of the authors is Luka Bakanidze. He will present his book “The Third Bank” which was translated in German last year. It is available in Turkish and in the near future Arabic translation will come out.

The second book is “Coming in Wheelchair” by Shorena Khukhua. One of the Austrian publishing houses decided to translate the book in German and it will be represented at the fair on the 11th of October. Another author is Toresa Mossy. He is going to bring his 2013 novel “Wisdom of Fancy” to the fair guests.
