Deep Vellum Publishing
Deep Vellum Publishing is a nonprofit publishing house founded in Dallas, Texas, in 2013 that operates under the threefold mission to publish great works of international literature in English translation; to foster the art and craft of translation; and to promote a more vibrant book culture and literary community in Dallas and beyond.
The importance of reading world literature is at the heart of Deep Vellum's mission: we watch the news to understand what's happening in the world; we read translated literature to understand how the world thinks and feels. Cultures communicate with each other through their literatures, and Deep Vellum was established to broaden cultural connections across the English-reading world by connecting readers with international authors in new and creative ways.
Diversity—of authors' genders, countries, languages, continents, viewpoints, sexual orientation, styles of literature—is one of the most unique aspects of our books that will resonate with readers. Our first year alone includes prominent authors who have been published in English before (Carmen Boullosa, Mikhail Shishkin, Jón Gnarr); renowned authors who have won prestigious prizes appearing in English for the first time (Sergio Pitol, Anne Garréta); and debut authors from underrepresented cultures published across the world (Alisa Ganieva of Dagestan, Russia; Fiston Mwanza Mujila from the Democratic Republic of Congo).
Design is of the utmost importance to us—readers' eyes will immediately be drawn to the distinctive beauty of Deep Vellum book covers and spines. The first three seasons' titles feature striking cover art and beautiful layouts in a linked thematic series designed by Anna Zylicz, a renowned American graphic designer who lives in Brescia, Italy.
We could not be more excited to be a part of the Consortium family. We look forward to working together to connect Deep Vellum's remarkable authors with readers.
