Kitabistan was established in 2016 with the goal to have better-translated literature in Azerbaijan, and in particular to translate and publish books on gender equality, democracy, human rights, and innovation. Kitabistan means Book Country in English, and every reader of this imaginary country is their citizen. Books that are not serving humanity, that incite national, racial, linguistic, gender discrimination among people, and that promote violence and aggression are prohibited in our country.
