Zartiss Collection

Les derniers géants by François Place

The Armenian Communities Department launched in 2019 a children’s book translation project entitled the “Zartiss Collection” to make available in Western Armenian some of the most renowned international literature for children and adolescents.

The books are recommended for different reading levels and are suitable for children and teenagers ranging from three to 18 years old. However, given the wide variety of titles and multiple age groups, even adults can enjoy reading these important books.

The Zartiss Collection is published by Nor Haratch in Europe and Abril Books in the US. The books are distributed across the world and can be ordered from the respective publishers.
