Rimal Publications was established in Cyprus in 1993. To begin with, it focused on children's books and then expanded its scope of interest to include topics such as art, history, politics, and culture, all of which are linked to the Middle East. Its founder Nora al Shawwa says that Rimal Publications aspires to be a bridge between cultures.
