Happy holidays to you all from your friends at Deep Vellum!
Since we last posted it’s been a whirlwind time, including an editors’ trip to Seoul, South Korea with our friends at New Vessel Press & Open Letter Books, AND we were featured on the front page of the Arts & Life section of the Dallas Morning News last weekend! This was huge for us, not only is it a great feature on Deep Vellum and what we are trying to accomplish, but we are in the ARTS section!! One of the goals I had starting Deep Vellum here in Dallas was to get literature & translation included in the discussion of the arts, and this feature goes a long way to making that goal a reality. Thank you to Elizabeth Hamilton for great conversations we had as she researched this article, and a double thanks to her and the DMN for including those snazzy book covers (designed by Anna Zylicz!!) on the front page of the Arts section too!!!!!! To read the article in full, click here or on the image above.
It is not too late to get your year-end tax-deductible donation in to Deep Vellum, every dollar helps so incredibly much. Please
And if you haven’t gotten any Christmas presents ordered yet, give books. If you can, give Deep Vellum books. Order a copy of Texas from your favorite online outlets (because we’re out of the office until the 29th!) or give a gift of a Deep Vellum subscription, we’ll ship the first book out just after Christmas, and it’ll be the gift that keeps on giving the next six months to a year!!!!!!
And just as the year draws to a close, start to get excited about Sergio Pitol’s THE ART OF FLIGHT (translsated by George Henson), the next book we are publishing. Scott Esposito included this remarkable book (which exists outside of any known genre of literature…) on his year-end wrapup of favorite books he read in 2014. Give his whole list a perusal over at Conversational Reading, and I am so excited to get this book in all your hands so very soon!
We have so much to be thankful for as the year wraps to a close, we’ll have more updates and thanks to everyone quite soon.
