Bright Fingers publishing was founded in 2005 by a group of young people who intended to change the negative image of culture for children in the Arab world in terms of content, publishing style, suitable price, and high quality, considering the somewhat difficult life conditions in our Arab world. The company had a distinguished presence from its very first moment, which kept growing with every fair or event dedicated to children. This growth wasn’t only in our sales, but also in the development of our methods and knowledge of the needs of the book, the child, the family, and the market.
At Bright Fingers publishing house we produce children’s books for children aged from six months to 14 years old, taking into consideration the needs of each age. We also make sure that our way of presenting ideas combines fun with learning, over and above educating children. As our motto indicates, “Discovery is a child’s real entertainment”. Based on this motto, our publishing house has made considerable strides on its long way to success.

Tél: +963 11 44685250 / 4421010

Atlas Publishing was established in the late 1950s by Samar Haddad’s father, the present director of the publishing house. Atlas was one of the first bookshops in Damascus. In 1963, academic books were among the first works on its publishing list, followed shortly by many other titles. In 2002 Samar Haddad became the editor of Atlas and gradually took over as the head of the company. She remained true to her father’s motto: the book is the premier tool of knowledge and should therefore be within everyone’s reach. Atlas Publishing set up a translation division and a distribution division, while continuing to publish titles of relevance to readers, in keeping with an editorial policy promoting quality and the highest standards of technical production.

Atlas in Greek Mythology is the Titan who is condemned to hold the earth for eternity, and our logo shows him holding the Globe in one hand and a book in the other hand. This is the idea of my late father the founder of Atlas Publishers back in the fifties.


Read here the interview with Samar Haddad, published in partnership with ActuaLitté (November 3, 2016).
