People often ask where the unusual name of the publishing house came from. O-Kratkoe is a new letter of the alphabet, which was invented by the minimalist writer Georgy Pluzhnikov. But, as you know, everything new is well-forgotten old. The short phoneme "O" and the letter denoting it are found in some Slavic and Finno-Ugric languages, there was such a letter in the Russian alphabet (withdrawn during the reform of the alphabet by Peter I). In our case, it means a short enthusiastic sound “Oh!”.
