They spoke about the collection!

In the case of Sophia Deterigou, who imposes with this first edition the continuation, everything seems poetic.
Great meanings, beautifully formulated, food for thought, like an endless sunshine in the azure Athenian sky...
Greek poetry, by joining hands with sign language, manages to communicate the essence of language and embark together on the exploration of its greatness.
