Our audiobooks are carefully prepared in our own acoustically perfect studios with full professional production in cooperation with best voice actors, audio directors, sound engineers, music composers and graphic designers. We don´t see audiobook as mere re-reading of the book aloud, but as an interpretation art or sound adaptation with its own atmosphere created by quality sound work and original music composed specially for every piece.
