About our name: Milet, or Miletus, is a historical site on the Aegean coast of Turkey. In ancient times, Milet was a center of knowledge, a place where people from different cultures and locations came together and exchanged ideas, creating new philosophies and directions. That spirit of multiculturalism and collaborative creation is the inspiration for Milet Publishing. It is reflected in our international team of authors, illustrators, translators and designers, as well as in our conscious, inclusive books and resources.
