About MiR

Mira Publishing House was founded as a non-for-profit Community Interest Company in 2011.

The idea of the company was initiated when Fadwa Mira Fadel –a computer scientist, developed an electronic device that helps disabled individuals to easily and efficiently enjoy any book. The device also prevents breaching the digital copyright of published materials as it provides high level of security.

The idea then extended to establishing Mira Intelligent Read (MiR) as a mother company that endorses innovative ideas related to the book industry.

In this respect, MiR tries to analyse the journey of the book, from its birth to its landing in the reader’s hand, identify the obstacles and find out the simplest and most affordable solution.

Our aim is to make the book available worldwide at affordable price and in various innovative means.
