Laboratory was founded in 2020 by Anton Martynov as a small nonfiction press. Today it is a reading ecosystem encompassing a wide range press and an e-library Librarius, largest in Ukraine. Anton Martynov, considered one of the most vigorous public proponents of a full-fledged Ukrainian book market, has more than 10 years of professional experience. 2 000 000 copies were printed under his management.
Laboratory has a portfolio of 80+ published books and aimed to launch up to 36 longsellers annually: 24 nonfiction and 12 fiction titles, both original and translated.
Our philosophy is contents + readability + design. We carefully select advantageous titles worldwide and publish them in all forms concurrently (paperback, hardcover, audiobook, e-book).
We proudly bring to Ukrainian readership a lot of big names: Bill Gates, Nobel-prized physicist Frank Wilczek, Pulitzer winners Isabel Wilkerson and Daniel Yergin, Vaclav Smil, Keith Ferazzi to name a few. Ukrainian editions of Gabriela Garcia, Nita Prose, Jenny Tinghui Zhang and others is our groundwork in belles-lettres.
After Russian assault we started to seek even more for Ukrainian authors so to insonify brand-new voices in Ukrainian literature, both fiction and nonfiction. The Russian-Ukrainian war and tectonic shifts brought to our society are our priority themes, but not the only ones.
