Enciklopédia Kiadó, based in Budapest, was founded in 1993 and is primarily a publisher of Hungarian-language books on science and art. Our publications – 10-15 new ones each year – are high-standard titles on topics of the humanities. In 1993-1994 we launched a periodical of contemporary art titled Balkon (”Balcony”). Our most ambitious and grand-scale enterprise so far has been the coloured Hungarian-language Encyclopaedia of Contemporary Hungarian Arts (I–III). Our series Contemporary Hungarian Writers 1945-1997 contains comprehensive factfiles, biographies and bibliography. Managed by Jenő Fitz, professor of archeology the ΜΟΥΣΕΙΟΝ-books focus on special issues of archeology in Hungary and have been published since 1998. The series titled Popular Lexicons focuses on exciting issues of cultural and educational history as well as erudition, combining easy-to-understand language and high professional standards. The aim of the books published under the serial title In the Wake of Hungarians is to inform Hungarians travelling abroad of Hungary- and Hungarian-related sights significant for cultural history and tourism as well. In 2005 we are launching a reprint series of over 20 illustrated travelogues entitled The Six Continents – Journeys and Discoveries first published back in the 1920s.
The present catalogue covers some of the latest bilingual and foreign-language (English, French, German and Latin) editions of our publications which we hope are of international interest.
