Hello! 

Thank you for your attention. This small publishing project is called Peculiar Press, and its aim is to bridge languages and cultures of the world through children´s literature.

What do we want to publish? Traditional tales from different places, always adapted by authors of that culture, with modern illustrations and a specific use of language and colour that makes learning languages easier for children.

¡Hola! 

Gracias por tu interés. Este pequeño proyecto editorial se llama Peculiar Press, y su intención es acercar lenguas y culturas del mundo a través de la literatura infantil. 

¿Qué queremos publicar? Cuentos tradicionales de diferentes lugares, adaptados siempre por autores locales, con ilustraciones modernas y un uso de la lengua y el color específicos que facilitan el aprendizaje de idiomas a los niños. 

In Peculiar Press we believe...

In the importance of learning languages from an early age, and in how positive it is to be introduced to traditions from other places. Needless to say we are starting with English and Spanish. Our first project is the traditional Spanish tale "El Castillo de Irás y no Volverás", but this is our version, with new characters and a completely different ending. If this first book goes well thanks to your support, we hope one day to be able to work with authors from Latin America and expand the series further.


En Peculiar Press creemos...

En la importancia de aprender idiomas desde la infancia, y en lo positivo que es conocer tradiciones y costumbres de otros lugares. Empezamos, como no podía ser de otra forma, en Inglés y Español. Nuestro primer proyecto es el cuento español "El castillo de irás y no volverás", pero esta es sólo nuestra versión, con nuevas protagonistas y un final completamente distinto. Si este primer cuento sale bien con vuestro apoyo, esperamos algún día poder trabajar también con autores de Latinoamérica, ampliando la colección de cuentos.

The team!

For this first book I was extremely lucky to work with two stunning artists, Laura and Patricia. Laura has written and translated the tale, whilst Patricia is working on the illustrations. We only need your help to bring it to the printers this Summer and therefore have copies ready to distribute in time to give for children at Christmas.

Laura Gonzalez studies her PhD at Oxford University, where she also teaches Translation, Cinema and Contemporary Literature - what she loves most. More often than not she ends up in trouble, just like the characters in her stories!

Patricia Corrales, our illustrator, is from Alcalá de Henares but came to England like the rest of us, and now is based in Bristol. Her illustrations are simple and soft but have a strong and empowering message underneath. With this she has given to our characters Espi and Pina the hands, legs and strength to conquer the castle! 


¡El equipazo!

Para hacer este primer cuento tengo la inmensa suerte de trabajar con dos artistas maravillosas: Laura y Patricia. Laura ha escrito y traducido la historia, y Patricia está actualmente trabajando en las ilustraciones. Sólo necesitamos vuestra ayuda para llevarlo a la imprenta este verano, y así tener ejemplares físicos que poder disfrutar listos para estas Navidades.

Laura González estudia su doctorado en la Universidad de Oxford, donde también da clases de Traducción, Cine y Literatura Contemporánea, que es lo que más le gusta. Con frecuencia se mete en más líos de los que debería, ¡como las protagonistas de sus cuentos!

Patricia Corrales, la ilustradora, es de Alcalá de Henares y vive en Bristol. Sus ilustraciones son simples y suaves pero tienen un mensaje fuerte y empoderante detrás. ¡Así le ha dado a nuestras protagonistas Espi y Pina las manos, piernas y valor para vencer en el Castillo de Irás y no Volverás!

Risks and challenges

El verdadero desafío es superar el objetivo para, no sólo llevar el libro a la imprenta, ¡sino poder seguir creando más cuentos!
The real challenge is to beat the target so that we can, not only print the book, but continue creating more books!
