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.

Palitra L Publishing at the Frankfurt Book Fair


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.

There are further projects Palitra L is planning for the fair. One of the most interesting projects is the book “33 Emotions-Georgian Alphabet” (the Georgian alphabet is made up of 33 characters). Georgian authors alphabetically share their emotions in the book. The book is designed by the famous Georgian painter Rusudan Petviashvili.

“Georgian Classical Cuisine” by Palitra L will be aimed at those people interested in Georgian traditional meals. “Photo-story from Tiflis to Tbilisi “(Tiflis is the old name of the capital of Georgia Tbilisi) is the album of the architecture of Tbilisi captured by the German photographer Aurélien Villette. The album was compiled by Palitra L and it will also be showcased for the fair guests.

Moreover, the publishing house has prepared educational projects and Children’s literature such as table games through Georgian literary characters. Meanwhile, the meetings with international partners and publishing houses are also scheduled. The informal gathering will take place where publishers will have a chance to share their experiences and ideas with each other.

The fair is going to commence on the 9th of October.
