Our philosophy at Rimal Publications is to continue to make our mark through books which are inspired by individuality and fueled by the need to build bridges between cultures.
Rimal Publications was established 1993 in Cyprus by Nora Shawwa. We are an independent publishing house that focuses on only a few titles per year on topics such as art, culture, history, travel, educational and children books. Rimal's underlying objective is to build bridges between cultures and enlighten the world at large about the rich history, culture and traditions of this part of the world.
You can find our books worldwide at hand selected book shops, concept stores, museum shops and through our website.
How it all began
Nora Shawwa first establised Rimal Publications to produce beautiful children's books, with the aim of encouraging young readers in the Arab world. Part of its beginnings, Rimal published the first comprehensive full-colour illustrated Arabic/Arabic Dictionary for Children in the elementary and intermediate levels, an achievement hailed in educational circles across the region.
Over the years, Rimal has come to be recognized for publishing books in both the English and Arabic languages that introduce readers to the unique cultural richness of the Middle East and the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean.
Partners & Associations
Through our select partnerships, Rimal Publications reaches a worldwide audience through focused distribution, special events and launches, direct online marketing campaigns, as well as books sold through traditional means including bookstores and major online outlets.
