Digitizing is our passion


Our culture can evolve if we can convey as much of our memories, common knowledge, and identity as possible to the people; all this in such a way that we encourage the need for further thinking.

At the dawn of the Hungarian multimedia CD-ROM publishing, we released our best seller titles “The Bible” and “Verstár” (“Poem Collection”) in 1997. Later, we published more than 300 more titles covering all aspects of the Hungarian culture: encyclopedias, bibliographies, family stories, historical monographs. More than 20 years later, we share our most valuable publications for free.
