ⲅⲉⲣⲓ, ⲫⲁ̄ⲓ̈, ⲟⲙⲓⲣ: Read, Write, Count!

Taras Press has a particular interest in Nubian languages as they have been used over the past millennium and a half, from Old Nubian to contemporary Nubian languages throughout Sudan and Egypt.


As a result, we are publishing four books alongside a number of Nubian learning materials. We've decided to do this through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. These include:

  • This is How we Write Nubian by Hatim-Arbaab Eujayl - an alphabet book introducing the Nubian script and basic vocabulary to early readers

  • The Miracle of Amanirenas by Hatim-Arbaab Eujayl - a fantasy storybook based on the historical encounter between Nubian queen Amanirenas and the Roman empire. 

  • Nabra's Nubian Numbers by Ramey Dawoud - This picture book teaches you how to count in Nobiin while incorporating elements of Nubian culture and traditions.

  • Sisters of the Water by Khalid Eltinaé - four illustrated adventures touching upon the raising of the Aswan Dam & our collective nostalgia for a place that was lost but never left us.


Our campaign has just ended, so for the time being we will be focused on fulfilling rewards for those backers, but we are also accepting preorder enquiries through the form below for bulk/trade customers (eg bookshops, schools and educators) - minimum 10 copies. This will help us to have an accurate sense of appropriate quantities for printing different language versions.
