New Vessel Press
New Vessel Press is proud to announce distribution by Consortium, making our books widely available for the first time since our founding in 2012. We are an independent, New York-based publishing house specializing in the translation of foreign literature into English.
By bringing readers foreign literature and literary non-fiction, we offer captivating, thought-provoking works with beautifully designed covers and high production values. We scour the globe looking for the best stories, knowing that only about 3 percent of the books published in the United States each year are translations. That leaves a lot of great literature still to be discovered.
At New Vessel Press, we believe that knowledge of foreign cultures and literatures enriches our lives by offering passageways to understand and embrace the world. We also regard literary translation as both craft and art, enabling us to traverse borders and open minds. We are committed to books that offer erudition and enjoyment, stimulate and scintillate, transform and transport.
And of course, what matters most is not where the authors hail from, or what language they write in. The most important thing is the quality of the work itself. And hence our name. We publish great books, just in a new vessel.
In our first year, our books have received a wide array accolades, from the New Republic to Words without Borders to Publishers Weekly. We are confident that our Fall 2014 offerings will continue to make their mark and look forward to bringing the world's great literature to ever more readers.
