In the autumn-winter season the ICC publishing will launch several new titles. Our publication plans include a book by one of the major Croatian writers on Central Europe, a richly illustrated album on the pre-war Lviv, and new issues of the “Herito” quarterly, dedicated to reformation and to “dissonant heritage”.
The International Book Fair in Krakow (26–29 October) will see the launch of a collection of essays by Miljenko Jergović – a Bosnian prose writer, poet, and journalist, honoured in 2012 with the Angelus Central European Literature Award. The selection of his texts, published under the intriguing title “Nutmeg, Lemon, and Turmeric. Observations from Zagreb”, was specially prepared for the Polish readers by an acclaimed translator, Magdalena Petryńska.
In December 2017, we shall launch a book about our southern neighbours by the doyen of Slovakian historiography – Ľubomír Lipták. “A Century Longer Than a Hundred Years” is an insightful and critical analysis of the position of Slovakia in Europe, and an original interpretation of the recent history of this country.
To celebrate this year’s 500th anniversary of reformation we have prepared a special issue of “Herito” quarterly (to be launched at the Book Fairs in Krakow). The subsequent issue will be dedicated to the so-called “dissonant heritage” in Central Europe.
In 2017, the ICC will also publish two bilingual Polish-English exhibition catalogues accompanying current displays at the ICC Gallery. They will be dedicated to the Balkan photographs by Michał Korta (25 October 2017), and to the exhibition “Lviv on the 24th June 1937. City, Architecture, Modernism” (30 November 2017).
A special position among the ICC publications belongs to the series on the arts and heritage of the regions of the pre-war Polish Republic. In the late 2017, the ICC will launch a publication on the Roman Catholic churches and monasteries of the former Nowogródek province (p. II, v. 5).
More information on the new publications by the ICC coming soon.
