Books for people. Smart and beautiful. Smart and intelligent. Plain and cheerful. For big and small. For people. For everyone.
The publishing house Apgāds ALI S was found in 2004. The books published since then have taken a notable place in the bookshelves of Latvian readers. Our books for children and youngsters reveal the enlightening content in rich Latvian language and are worked out in cooperation with great Latvian artists as well as very talanted young art students. This has helped us to win several remarkable prizes and earn a recognition not only in Latvia, but also abroad.
After a short rest during the economical recession we renewed our activities in 2010, based on the same principle: less is more, and every book we have published is worth reading. We have recently started a new line in book publishing branch in Latvia – cards and card decks for leasure time and/or self-awareness. Books of self actualisation have been one of the priorities from the very beginning of our publishing house Apgāds ALI S.
The anthroposophy, biodynamics and waldorf education are the topics we have become specially and deeply interested in.
From the very establishment of our company in 1999, we started also to provide translation services. As any foreign language opens a new world and offers sudden opportunities we highly appreciate the work of our translators of the three Baltic languages Estonian, Lithuanian and, of course, Latvian. They are qualified to translate technical texts from the English and German languages, and thanks to our highly skilled editors, also fiction. This combination guarantees the results of the highest quality. We started to publish books of native authors and went on also with publishing foreign literature in 2004, becoming a small but notable publishing house in Latvia with a specialization in anthroposophy, biodynamics and waldorf pedagogy.
