The Warsaw Book Fair, 16-19th 2013, will play host to the launch of the Polish language edition of Tom Taylor & Colin Wilson‘s The Example, to be published by Poland’s premier comic publishing house, Wydawnictwo Komiksowe.
Taylor was pleased at the prospect of more readers finding their way to his first published comics work.
“The Example is the play, and then the comic, that launched my career. From this story sprang a partnership with the great Colin Wilson that would see us spend years in the ‘Star Wars’ universe together,” he said. “It’s wonderful to now see that little fictional briefcase from Melbourne spread its fear into another language. Dziękuję.”
Gestalt’s Editor-in-Chief, Wolfgang Bylsma, is delighted that more European language versions of Gestalt titles are appearing.
“It feels fitting for Gestalt to have a greater presence in Europe,” he said. “Whilst we have a diverse range to our publications list in terms of styles and narratives, there does seem to be an underlying element that unifies them as a whole – which I believe to be the quality inherent in the storytelling – and it is hugely gratifying to have that recognised and acknowledged by publishers in other territories seeking to reproduce the work for their own market.”
Many more of Gestalt Comics‘ titles and creators are being represented at the Warsaw Book Fair, 16th-19th May 2013, under the Australia Unlimited banner, thanks to Austrade and the Australian Embassy in Poland.
