Above all we focus on cultural history, popular science, current affairs and biographies, from a less obvious perspective. We also publish books on health issues, crafts and humour. We publish around 50 titles a year and our turnover in 2011 was 1.8 million euros. Atena has a staff of seven people. Some of our books have won important literature prizes in Finland. In Finland, we are known as an interesting publisher that guarantees quality in its books.
