Four volumes of Belarus' illustrated history to be published in 2017

Four volumes of the illustrated history of Belarus will be published in 2017. Publishers note that encyclopedic literature is becoming increasingly popular in Belarus. This is indicated by sales volumes.

The readers are choosing these books mostly in the Belarusian language. Among them are the series "Asvetniki Belarusi", "Frantsysk Skaryna - the man of the world", as well as the trilogy about the first Belarusian book printer for children. These publications have already won several awards at international book exhibitions.

Vladimir Andriyevich, director of the unitary enterprise "Publishing house "Belarusian Encyclopedia named after Petrus Brovka":
A whole generation was born in sovereign Belarus, which wants to know the history of its Belarus. While somewhere around 30% of published encyclopaedic literature was earlier sold during one year, this year we raised sales to up to 90%.90% of literature issued in 2017 was sold in the 1st half of 2017.

Publishers do not stop there. Already in 2017 they plan to publish encyclopedias dedicated to Francysk Skaryna, Yanka Kupala and Yakub Kolas.
