WELCOME TO EDICIONES NEVSKY & NEVSKY BOOKS
Established in Madrid in 2009, Ediciones Nevsky started off specialising in Russian literature in Spanish translation. The press is the personal project of two translators, with the aim of creating a space where translation, culture and ideas meet and blend together.
The project has expanded over the years to include European and Spanish authors, building a personal selection of the most vibrant European titles in Spanish translation.
We are in the process of building a website for the project. Meanwhile, you can follow us on twitter @NevskyBooks. Please contact us for more information, or to request digital or printed copies for review: firstname.lastname@example.org
