Sabuhi Zeynalov, Director of “Hedef” Publishing House
We have been in the market since 2019 and our publishing house is one of the five largest specialized organisations. In the local market - the largest in terms of the number of textbooks produced. We started our activity with the publication of methodological books. A lot of materials have been released over the years. Currently, the volume of our publications totals to about seven hundred titles.
During the pandemic, the publication of such materials was somewhat suspended, and we decided to publish fiction. Since the main direction of the publishing house is children’s literature, at the exhibition we are presenting a large assortment of children's books. Among them is one of five versions of the illustrated book for children “Dede Gorgud”.
Our goal is to expand our audience and raise children. Taking into account the present events, we have published books dedicated to the martyrs of the second Karabakh war. I would like to say about the book dedicated to Mubariz Ibrahimov. This is the first cartoon novel in Azerbaijan. We really want the future generation to grow up in a patriotic spirit, in the spirit of this victory.
The exhibition helps us to convey our work to a wide audience, to tell about our plans, including the wish that Azerbaijani children are grown and brought up on our books.
