Painting & Book Industry

Humans have improved in the way they look at the world in every age. The history of painting is also the history of seeing. The historical image of nature and man largely determines the artistic work of the painter.

The book has come to our language from Arabic as its word origin. The original root of the book comes from “ketaba” which means “to write”.

The book trade is an industry that deals with the production and distribution of books, particularly print, e-books and other forms of media, including non-books.

The industry is divided into three segments - production book trade (publisher and book marketing), book wholesale and distribution (Wholesale book trade) and book retail (Bookstore Bookstore).
