Dar Al Saqi wins Sheikh Zayed Publishing and Technology Award 2016
We are thrilled to announce that our sister company,Dar Al Saqi,has won the prestigious Sheikh Zayed Publishing and Technology Award 2016. The judges praised Dar Al Saqi for having adopted, since its establishment in London in 1979, a ‘broad-minded cultural project’ and for having published ‘a wide spectrum of serious books in thought, science, and art’. The Beirut branch of Saqi Books was founded in 1987 by Andre Gaspard, and has since made a name for itself as publisher of progressive and ground-breaking works, as well as the best in new Arabic literature and non-fiction. Several of its publications won awards in various categories covered by the Sheikh Zayed Book Award.
