Happy (almost) holidays! As the season nears, consider giving the gift of an Archipelago Books subscription to family and friends.
A yearlong subscription is only $135 for ten of our forthcoming titles, or more than 30 percent off the cover price, and includes a free backlist book of your choice. A six-month subscription is only $70 for five forthcoming titles, or more than 20 percent off the cover price.
An Archipelago subscription makes a thoughtful gift for lovers of literature, and goes a long way toward funding our mission of publishing books for their originality, literary vitality, and social significance. Each of our books is beautifully made, though you’ll see that they look even better together. And each is proof that the maxims of the skeptics (literature is doomed, nobody reads translations, the book is a thing of the past) are greatly exaggerated!
Indeed, it’s been a great year for Archipelago. In 2010, Gerbrand Bakker‘s The Twin, translated from the Dutch by David Colmer, was awarded the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and Michael Henry Heim was awarded the PEN Translation Prize for his rendering of Hugo Claus‘s Wonder.
Please purchase your gift subscription today. We promise it will be well worth it.
With gratitude and our best wishes,
Jill and Florence
