Dar El Shorouk

Dar El-Shorouk was established in 1968 by Mohamed El Moallem, one of the founding fathers of independent modern publishing in Egypt and the Arab World, who started his publishing career in the 1940s.

Dar El-Shorouk has continued to champion principles of diversity, freedom of thought, professional excellence and continuous innovation, while maintaining international standards. Ibrahim El Moallem managed the day-to-day operations of publishing and printing and started an ambitious plan of expansion and modernization. Recruiting some of the best talents in the areas of publishing, printing, management and art direction, he was able to multiply Dar El-Shorouk's initial Capital 200 folds and sales 50 folds in two decades.

Dar El-Shorouk boasts the region's most distinctive list of award-winning titles and authors, many of them legendary thinkers, literary figures and statesmen. It is the only Arab publisher which publishes exclusively works by two Arab Nobel Prize laureates: Naguib Mahfouz and Ahmed Zewail. It is also the only Arab publisher with numerous international awards and prizes in the field of children's books
